CUSD Preschool and Child Care Programs

The Preschool and Child Care Department runs three different programs.

The first program is child care at the elementary school level.  Within child care there are two different options. The first option is general care where children are given a place to be before or after school. This works well for parents who need to be at work either earlier or later than the typical school hours. The second option is just enrolling your child in our Kid’s Club Connection (KCC). Here we offer a variety of clubs from homework help to cooking to creative art.  These are wonderful options that expand your child’s knowledge and skill level in a variety of disciplines!  If your child in registered for full-time in child care, he/she is automatically enrolled in KCC.  

Our other two programs are two preschools: Crown Preschool and Strand Preschool.  We understand that a child’s education doesn’t start when they get into kindergarten.  It should and can start years before that.  Both preschools create an environment where children are formed academically, physically, and socially. Strand Preschool is a state-funded program located at Strand Elementary School.  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:
