Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians

Tribal Preschool

All of our teachers meet the State of California qualifications to teach in a preschool setting.  Each teacher is certified in First Aid, Infant, child and Adult CPR.  Their certification is renewed every two years.  We encourage continued education and offer in-service trainings throughout the year.  We work closely with TANF youth programs to offer students hands-on child development experience.  In addition, the preschool participates in the Soboba Tribal Internship program which allows tribal members to gain knowledge of the Child Development field while enrolled in college classes for Early Childhood Studies.
