Sonya CardenasI would like to welcome you to Carvajal Early Childhood Education Center.  We are starting our 10th year as a Head Start Center.  This is my 8th year as the principal of this wonderful school.  We have 25 amazing teachers with a wealth of experience and 40 paraprofessionals who support the work of educating and keeping the children safe and happy.

We are committed to providing an exciting learning experiences for your child.  The teacher and staff are trained extensively to work with young learners.  Learning is fun at Carvajal.  Everyday is unique and special.   We have several enrichment activities throughout the year, i.e. Health Fairs, Math and Literacy Nights, Grandparents’ Dance, plays, science fairs, etc.     I am proud to say that Carvajal has an amazing parent involvement program.  Parents are welcomed and encouraged to volunteer at school.    

This year we will begin our second year having a Dual Language program in eight classrooms.  Dual Language Education, which has over 30 years of research, demonstrates long term success.  By middle school, the native Spanish and English speakers will be fluent speakers, readers and writers in both languages.  We are the model for this program in an ECE setting; this is an exciting endeavor for Carvajal!

Our Carvajal Vision Statement states, “Through purpose, passion and persistence, we at Carvajal will instill a love of learning and high achievement for all stakeholders.”  These words are meant to inspire our work as educators.

Our doors open at 7:00 a.m. and the learning begins promptly at 7:30 a.m.   The day ends at 2:30 p.m.

The 2018-19 school year is going to be awesome!

Sincerely,
Sonya E. Cardenas
