The Salvation Army Preschool

Riverside Corps

Riverside, CA 92501
(951) 784-3571 Ext. 110

The preschool serves 106 low-income children ages 3-5, so that their parents can find employment or continue to work. Parents are given 60 days to gain employment and pay on a sliding scale according to income. Most parents qualify them for no-cost to low-cost tuition. In the long run it is less costly to keep these kids in child care than for their parents to have to return to public assistance. Without the preschool many children would not acquire the skills needed for primary school. Please call (951) 784-4495 Ext. 109 for more information.
