The ceremonial ribbon for a new center in East Los Angeles focused on providing early childhood education services was cut Tuesday by Los Angeles Unified School District officials, who were joined by other special guests, students, parents and staff.

The  “4th Street Early Education Center” is located on the 4th Street Elementary School campus, and was built with funds from LAUSD‘s $19.5 billion New School Construction and Modernization Program.

“Today’s ribbon cutting signifies another investment in our children and their future, especially here in East Los Angeles,” said former US Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, who is a candidate for termed-out Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina’s district seat, which includes East LA.

Board Member Monica Garcia, who represents the district where the school is located, officially welcomed the center, and said “the Class of 2028” now has “beautiful classrooms and a nature garden [where they can] learn, grow and play.”
