Preschool & Child Care

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 tution-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.

CUSD is excited to announce a new partnership with Champions, a Before and After School Child Care and Enrichlment program.

Child Care for Fall 2020! 

Child development research shows that three important things impacts 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.
