Weinberg Foundation awards $1M to preschool for education center


The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation is awarding nearly $1 million to KCCA Preschools of Hawaii to establish a center that will train educators of young children. 

The center will serve as a professional development community hub. It will work with the new early learning system the state is designing. 

It’s expected to open in December at KCCA’s Mother Rice campus in Moiliili.

KCCA was established in 1985 as the Free Kindergarten and Children’s Aid Association. It operates seven nationally accredited preschools on Oahu, serving nearly 1,000 children each year.  

The foundation will formally present the $930,000 award at a ceremony in Waikiki on Tuesday.
