Adult Education Requirements

Parents who join CVPNS enroll in a non-credit unit bearing parent education class at the Castro Valley Adult And Career Education (CVACE).  Parents work one day  week at the preschool, CVPNS.  All adult members must be fingerprinted ($47 non refundable fee) and cleared, show proof of a current negative TB test as well as the required immunizations before working in the classroom. Parents are also required to complete an ASQ & ASQ:SE for their child prior to enrollment.

Potty Training

Children should be in the process of training, making attemps to use the toilet or be aware of the process so the school and Parent can be in parnership in helping with their toileting needs.  Often, seeing other children going to the toilet will motivate potty-training.  The Director is the only person who is authorized to change diapers,  support children with toileting needs, and changing clothing.

If you have any questions, you can either call the school directly at: 510-582-7731 or send an email to our Membership VP at membership@cvpns.org.  If you would like to mail your completed application, please send to:
