Preschool assistance offered to foster kids

Twenty-five percent of foster children in California are placed in special education, 75 percent function below grade level, and 83 percent are held back by third grade. To offset those statistics, Los Angeles Universal Preschool has launched a community-benefit program to enroll children that live in foster care or in the care of relatives other than their parents into high-quality preschools at no cost.

Eligible children must be residents of Los Angeles County and turn four years old by Dec. 2 of the preschool program year. Five preschools in the Santa Clarita Valley receive LAUP funds. Call (866) 581-5287 or visit to enroll.
