* Calling all Parents *

Next week for the last week of Extended School Year we will be inviting a series of Community Workers to visitor our students. The visitors include a firefighter, police officer, librarian, and life guard. We would love to invite any of our parents to take part in this opportunity as well!

If you have an interesting job that preschoolers can learn about, have proof of your adult immunizations (Tdap, MMR, TB, and Influenza vaccine), and are willing to present to a group of 40 preschoolers, please let me know as soon as possible! We are reserving Friday, July 12th from 10:00 am - 10:30 am for the parent portion of the presentation.

Thanks for your help in making this an incredibly fun event for the kids!


Exciting news for 2019-2020 at Crown

Beginning this fall, Crown Preschool is pleased to announce FREE preschool to any eligible families who are at or under the income ceilings established by the California State Department of Education. If you are within these income guidelines or if your child has an IEP regardless of income, please contact our office immediately so we can begin processing your application.

All eligible families will be asked to provide proof of income and upon acceptance, all deposits will be refunded. This process happens very fast as documentation of earnings are time sensitive so please make sure you have all required information before proceeding. Please contact us with additional questions.

Completing Your 2019-2020 Preschool Enrollment

We still have many new and returning families that have yet to turn in their enrollment paperwork for the upcoming school year. Applications and deposits hold your spot but enrollment paperwork ensures you a start date on August 22, 2019.

  • If we don't have a completed file before August 22, your child will not be able to attend class on the first day. (Exclusions apply only to newly transferred military families)
  • We are unable to offer extended care to any family without enrollment paperwork, and spots are filling up quickly.

We appreciate your help with this as we try and wrap up the enrollment process.


After much consideration, the district has decided to adjust the hours of the preschool program so that all 5 days operate on the same schedule. Our morning session will run from 8:15 a.m. - 11:15 a.m., Monday through Friday and our afternoon session will run from 12:05 p.m. - 3:05 p.m., Monday through Friday. “Early Release Wednesday” at Crown is now a thing of the past!
