Early Childhood Education

Early Childhood Education Starts with CVESD

We believe each child is unique and capable. We strive to provide a program that values creativity, encourages curiosity, and fosters a love of learning. Using developmentally appropriate teaching strategies, the staff facilitates student growth in all areas; physical, social, emotional, and intellectual. Varying levels of ability, overall development and learning styles are anticipated, accepted, and used to design appropriate activities.

Program Goals

  • To provide the physical, emotional, social, and mental development support of each child in the preschool.
  • To provide each child/student with a program that will enable him/her to appreciate self-worth and a positive self-image.
  • To provide a sound foundation for continuing academic and social success in the following years.
  • To provide every child with a feeling of being loved and accepted for his/her unique self.
  • Remember that a child's work is play and that valuable learning and development experiences come through play.
  • To expose the child to literacy and technology, which will give the child skills to compete in the changing world.

School Readiness Program

If you have a child 3-5 years of age, eager to learn and make friends, School Readiness is the place! Come and join other parents and their children for a unique opportunity to learn more about your child's development and key educational foundations that will prepare your child to be a successful student. Our sessions are designed to provide parent education and organized parent and child activities. This is a wonderful opportunity to participate in fun and engaging learning activities.

This is an 8-week program that meets twice a week for 2-hour sessions. Sessions require the active participation of a parent/guardian and are offered in English and Spanish. Chula Vista Residents Only For more information, contact us at (619) 425-9600, Ext.181760.

*This program was designed to provide students who do not qualify for our income-based preschool program with an opportunity to participate in an educational experience before attending transitional kindergarten or kindergarten.

Preschool Parent Volunteers

One of the most important aspects of our program is using parent volunteers on a part-time basis. If you are not working during the day and have the time, we invite you to assist in the classroom. Your help will make the preschool experience more valuable and meaningful to you and your child. If you have younger children, you can discuss with the teacher ways you can assist by taking home projects (please arrange this with the individual classroom teacher).

To ensure the health of all children and to meet the State Licensing requirements, all parents must have a TB clearance. In addition, as of September 1, 2016, a new licensing requirement mandates that all staff members and parent volunteers be immunized against influenza, pertussis, and measles. You must provide proof of immunization requirements to the classroom teacher before assisting in the classroom.

Parent Advisory Committee

The Preschool Program has a Preschool Parent Advisory Committee. This committee is involved in planning, developing, and contributing to the educational program for preschool students. Preschool parents who would like to participate on this committee are invited to contact their child’s teacher or the Preschool Office.
