Oak View students receive expanded classes, scholarships
First 5 Ventura County has received funding for two grants funding Oak View families’ Parent and Child Together classes and preschool scholarships.
The funds come via the Chris and Zelda Kunkle Oak View Community Foundation and the Bert M. and Mildred O. Dahl Fund through the Ventura County Community Foundation, and are available for Oak View families via Ojai Valley Neighborhood for Learning.
“This grant funding is timely and especially significant because it allowed us to offer summer classes for the first time ever in Oak View, and increase our fall programming,” said First 5 Ventura County Executive Director Petra Puls. “Providing educational opportunities for our youngest Ventura County children is critical for their long-term academic success.”
A total of $26,800 was awarded to First 5, with $25,326 designated for preschool scholarships and PACT classes. For more information on how to apply, visit www.first5ventura.org.
