Child Development/4-Year-Old Kindergarten

Child Development/4-Year-Old Kindergarten Programs

CCSD offers full-day and half-day Child Development/pre-kindergarten for children who are four years of age by September 1.

Full-day Child Development programs are funded under EIA and GOF funds. They allow the district to provide full-day instruction for eligible students. CCSD's preschool programs are designed to develop skills necessary for success in the regular public school curriculum with a focus on emergent literacy, early numeracy, science and social studies. Through full day and half day inclusive preschool programming, the needs of bilingual, English for Speakers of Other Languages, and preschool children with special education needs are met.

Applying for the 2013-2014 Academic Year

CCSD is currently accepting applications for its Child Development (4-Year-Old Kindergarten) programs for the 2013-2014 academic year. (Download our registration information flyer in English or Spanish to learn more.)

Pre-registration began on March 4 and ends on May 10, 2013.  Parents are encouraged to pre-register early at the district elementary school where their children are zoned to attend.

Pre-registration does not guarantee enrollment in a Child Development program. Selection priority is given to children who demonstrate academic and developmental needs and risk factors. Children will be selected for individual screening appointments based on information provided by the parent on the Pre-Registration Form.  Screening appointment cards will be mailed by the schools, Screenings will be scheduled at school sites. Notification of Child Development program acceptance will be mailed to parents.

Parents must present the following documents by May 10 in order to preregister:

  • Family Survey
