Storyteller Children’s Center is a therapeutic preschool that provides high-quality early childhood education for homeless and at-risk children in Santa Barbara County, as well as comprehensive support services for their families.
Children at Storyteller Children’s Center receive early childhood education, therapeutic counseling, and 3 nutritious meals a day. Our teachers are trained in “Reflective Practice and Supervision”, a technique prepares our teachers to respond to the critical needs of each family.
Parents and guardians are given access to educations classes, home visits, case management and counseling. Storyteller teachers meet quarterly with the parents/guardians to establish goals for their family’s education and career. Our goal is to empower families and to help children become kindergarten ready. We believe that part of our role is to encourage families to become engaged in the community.
