Crown Preschool serves children 3 and 4 years of age. The three-year-old program offers a five-day weekly option along with limited spaces in our two- or three-day weekly option.

The preschool is excited to introduce a newly adopted curriculum rolling out in Fall 2020 known as, Creative Curriculum®. Creative Curriculum® for Preschool is a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that promotes exploration and discovery as a way of learning, enabling children to develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical thinking skills. Creative Curriculum® also aligns with the California Preschool Learning Foundations (PK Standards). Crown Preschool also implements California’s Teaching Pyramid, a systematic framework that promotes social and emotional development through teaching children how to self-regulate and offering a prevention and promotion model. Lastly, Crown Preschool now offers My Music Workshop, a 30-minute music class offered to students twice per month. Students will participate in fun lessons designed to teach musical notes, advanced concepts, and instrumental exploration.
Currently, only Crown Preschool offers an extended day program that opens at 7 a.m. and closes at 5:30 p.m. for families needing care beyond the preschool day. Extended care applications will be released once priority enrollment is complete, then will be available on a rolling basis after March 15, until full enrollment is reached.
