CUSD currently offers the following PreK options:

  • Part-Day Tuition Based PreK (Crown only)
PreK follows the CUSD TK-12 school calendar from Aug – June.


To be eligible for PreK, children must be at least 3-years-old and no more than 4-years-old on or before the first day of school for the year they wish to enroll. Additionally, all students must be fully potty trained.


Below are the registration criteria which determine a family’s eligibility for enrollment in either our tuition-based or state-funded program.
  • Part-Day State-Funded PreK is based on family size and income along with IEP status.
  • Part-Day Tuition Based PreK is available for those families who do not qualify for State Funding.


To apply for PreK, all families must present the following along with their PreK application. Incomplete applications will not be processed.
  1. Current Immunizations (child must have 3-Polio, 4-DTP, 1-HIB, 3-HepB, 1-Varicella and 1-MMR)
  2. Original or Certified Copy of Birth Certificate
  3. Two (2) Current Utility Bills as proof of residency including name and address
  4. As of Feb 1, 2020, a non-refundable application fee of $100.00, payable to “Coronado Unified School District” must be submitted with the application for each child you wish to enroll (cash, check, or charge accepted). 
Families applying for state-funding must present the additional documents with the application to waive the fee. Documents must be originals.
  • Family's current proof of income for all employed parents/guardians, using one of the following:
  1. Military LES statement
  2. Pay stub(s) equivalent to one(1) month's income
  3. Prior year's Tax Statement
  4. Self-Employemed current profit/loss statement
PreK programs have limited space and preference is given to returning families through the month of February only. Starting in March, all applications are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be reviewed, verified, and placed on an eligibility list (State-Funded) or waiting list (Tuition Based). You will be contacted mid-March of acceptance and a formal registration appointment will be scheduled. 
Please Note: Although we will do our best to accommodate your child, completing an application does not guarantee enrollment.
