Full-Day Preschool & Child Care

The full-day preschool program provides a safe and nurturing environment for students and prepares them for the rigors of kindergarten instruction. Children must be 3 years old by September 1 of each school year in order to enroll.  The program provides age-appropriate education and life experiences which facilitate children's development in essential skills related to language and literacy, mathematics, technology, physical development (Spanish language development available at one site), and social-emotional development. These learning domains are based on California Department of Education Preschool Learning Foundations, and taught through the use of Creative Curriculum. This program operates year-round and has funds available for income-eligible families who meet state requirements.  The hours of operation are 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Lunch and snack are provided to all students.
