PreK follows the CUSD TK-12 school calendar from Aug – June.


To be eligible for preschool, children must be at least 3-years-old.  It is recommended to apply at least 6 weeks prior to the third birthday.  Enrollment will be based off of state guidelines for CA State Preschool Programs (CSPP).  Private pay is based on a combination of age and application date.  


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.
