listening, and socialization under the direction of a credentialed teacher. Parents learn and discuss child development,
family life, and best parenting practices. Field trips, guest speakers, and new friendships pave the way for future school
readiness. Find out more at www.CapistranoAdultSchool.org or call (949) 493-0658. This is a CUSD program.
