Cordova Community Preschool
where learning is fun!

Message From The Director .....

Welcome and come join the fun! My name is Maria Salgado and I am the director of Cordova Community Preschool. It is my privilege to have been employed here at Cordova Community Preschool since 2001 . I have over 25 years of early childhood teaching experience. In our program I have taught in every area and still truly enjoy interacting with the children whenever I can. 

Our staff is a team of qualified nurturing teachers who have over 135 years of combined experience. While we pride ourselves on our pre- kindergarten readiness classes that include academics, art, music and Bible for the children, we are also proud of the fact that we offer a balanced day with loving care much like what is provided at home. Please feel free to contact me at any time or make an appointment  for a tour. I look forward to meeting you soon!
