Los Angeles, CA (January 10, 2013) – Para Los Niños, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit focused in comprehensive education and family services to ensure children’s academic success, today announced the appointment of Angela M. Capone, Ph.D., to lead the organization in its core foundation of early education. As Director of Early Education, Dr. Capone will be the driving force in continuing Para Los Niños’ history of achievement by preparing inner-city preschool and pre-K students to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. In addition, she will be instrumental in supporting families with referrals as an added resource for the success of their children.
Dr. Capone brings with her a strong hands-on experience in early education and family services.

“I’m honored to be part of this wonderful organization that consistently supports, nurtures, and develops the lives of children and families in the heart of Los Angeles. I know first-hand the transformation children go through when they’re in a positive learning environment that allows for creative self-expression coupled with the family services they require to sustain their success,” says Dr. Capone. “I’m excited to embrace my new position and bring along enriching experiences to continue the growth of Para Los Niños.”
