Part-day State Preschool spaces are FREE. You must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for part-day State Preschool. For the State Preschool Income Eligibility document, please click here

Fee-based options include, part-day, full-day, and an extended day/additional hours for part-day state preschool students.  We are not contracted with the California Department of Education to provide full-day state preschool. 

Fees are due monthly (August - May) and are on a sliding scale, based on family income.
