History

Alternatives in Action’s Home Sweet Home preschool was founded in 1998 as a Community Impact Project by youth interested in child development, and became a licensed preschool in 2001. Home Sweet Home was used as a credited lab class for Alternatives in Action High School students, and provided approximately 275 working families with high quality child care. In 2013, due to the loss of our lease in our West Alameda campus, it was determined that the legacy of Home Sweet Home would continue in a new form: as an Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC). Consequently, after seventeen years of service, in June 2015 Home Sweet Home closed its doors in West Alameda in anticipation of the creation of the Early Childhood Education Center in the Seminary Neighborhood of East Oakland next to our Alternatives in Action High School.
