• New Playground at Lighthouse Preschool

    by Kim Biggio

    image008A ribbon cutting was held this past Monday at Lighthouse Preschool, a parent cooperative preschool under the umbrella of Pacific Grove Adult school. A beautiful new play structure has been installed on the site to enhance the play experience of all of the children.

    Kim Biggio, lead teacher of Lighthouse Preschool, wrote a grant proposal to the Monterey Peninsula Foundation and was awarded $10,000 towards the purchase of the structure. Pacific Grove Unified School District contributed the additional $15,000 necessary to make this dream come true.

    Six years ago Lighthouse Preschool was opened to help lessen the extreme waiting list for the parent cooperative preschool on Pine Ave, next to Robert Down School. In that time, the site has been developed and the preschool has thrived. In 2008, Children’s Miracle Network awarded the school a $10,000 grant that was used to build a bike road for the children. With the addition of this new play structure, the site has been fully developed.

    Many children and parents were on hand to celebrate the day, along with Barbara Martinez, newly appointed principal of the Adult School.

    Lighthouse Preschool has a morning class and an afternoon class for children 2 years nine months to Kindergarten. For more information, please call 646-6583.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm.
