Crown & Silver Strand Preschool

We understand that a child’s education doesn’t start when they get into kindergarten.  It should start years before that.  Both CUSD preschools create an environment where children develop academically, physically, and socially.  For the 2020-2021 school year, CUSD offers the following:
  • Crown Preschool is a tuition-funded preschool.  The program now offers limited state-funded enrollment opportunities for qualifying families.  Crown is located at the Early Child Development Cetner. 
  • Silver Strand Preschool is a state-funded preschool. The site implements a Quality Counts California contract and maintains a 4-star rating.  Additionally, the program implements an early education enhancement grant, San Diego Quality Preschool Initiative, SDQPI.

Champions Child Care

CUSD is excited to announce a new provider for Before and After School Child Care and Enrichment opportunities. 

Will you need childcare during Distance Learning? Please complete Champion's Distance Learning form to indicate your childcare needs (Link will take you away from CUSD site). Children do not need to attend CUSD schools in order to enroll with Champions. 
Child development research shows that three important things impact a child's future success: social-emotional skills, executive functioning skills, and opportunities for inquiry-based learning.  With almost 30 years of experience, Champions has developed a curriculum that is carefully designed to build on these three areas in a fun and engaging environment.  Their daily activities highlight group problem solving, leadership, focus, and self-regulation skills, and frequently follow a child's own interest to spark self-guided learning.  We are excited to partner with Champions to provide meaningful opportunities for Every Child, Every Day to feel confident, challenged, and inspired.
