My KRON 4: East Bay preschool must leave city-owned facility

 

ANTIOCH (KRON) — An East Bay preschool now has to leave a city-owned facility where it has been for 11 years.

In this MyKRON4Story, the preschool’s executive director talked to KRON 4’s Haaziq Madyun about why it has been so difficult to find another location.

Tuesday was the final packing day, and an emotional one, for the faculty at Kids’ Club preschool in Antioch. The education program is the largest state-funded preschool facility in Contra Costa County and has annually served an enrollment of 300 students at the Bidwell Education Campus for the past 11 years.

“We do not have a place to go, and I never thought that would happen to this program,” faculty member Carolyn Mokski said.

Mokski took over the preschool program from the city of Antioch 20 years ago. Now that their lease has ended, the size of the preschool has been the major problem in finding a new facility.
