Preschool & Child Care

CUSD Preschool and Child Care Programs

The Preschool and Child Care Department runs three different programs.

Coronado Unified School District offers Child Care programs at the elementary school locations and Extended Day at Crown Preschool.  The program provides a safe space for your child to play at in the early morning and until the late afternoon. During the Child Care operation hours the children participate in outdoor activities, indoor activities and are invited to bring a snack for the mid-later afternoon. 

This district also offers two preschools: Crown Preschool and 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 preschools create an environment where children are formed academically, physically, and socially. Strand Preschool has 2 options this year; is a QRIS state-funded, County granted program located at Strand Elementary School.  Silver Strand is now also offering a tuition-funded program for the 2018-2019 school year.  Crown Preschool is a tuition-funded preschool located at the Early Childhood Development Center.  For more about both programs and registration, visit their individual websites below:
