Who We Are
Herencia Guadalupana Lab School, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2014, recruits and educates preschoolers in poverty who do not have access to quality education. Our research-based approach to educating preschoolers in poverty is unique and nurtures perseverance, resilience, goal-focus, and self-regulation while emphasizing cognitive growth. These are the threads that provide a high quality learning experience for preschoolers in poverty that facilitates their development, and social and economic contributions to society.
Herencia participates in the Quality First program, a voluntary coaching and rating system for childcare centers sponsored by the state organization First Things First. Herencia conducts development workshops to educate and support childcare providers in the surrounding community.
Herencia Guadalupana Lab Schools has 501C-3 status under the rules of the IRS. A donation to HGLS can be tax deductible as a charitable contribution.
