Early Childhood Education Center

Opening 2018 in East Oakland’s Seminary Neighborhood:
a year-round program for children ages 0-5!

The Alternatives in Action Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC) is being modeled after our award winning preschool, Home Sweet Home, which relocated from West Alameda in the summer of 2015 to East Oakland. Our program positively impacts children’s cognitive, physical, and social emotional development through high-quality care, socioeconomic diversity, and family engagement.

Thank you to everyone who joined us on September 19, 2017 for our Grand Opening Ceremony. We are incredibly thankful to our program & community partners, staff & youth, former staff & youth, and donor & funders who helped make this project a reality. We are excited to share a few photos from the event below.

If you are interested in participating in the build out of this center, please contact Cierra Price, Early Childhood Education Center Program Director, at cprice@alternativesinaction.org or call us at 510.285.6290.
