Pertinent Information regarding LGSD Preschool:

The state Preschool Program is a comprehensive Child Development program for 4 and 3 year old children. Eligible children turning four years old by September 1st are enrolled first, then children who turn three years old on or before September 1st of the current school year. A priority is given to four-year olds. Children will be placed on an interest list and ranked according to state preschool eligibility requirements.

Families must be prepared to disclose all gross monthly income as well as family size in order to determine eligibility. 

We welcome children with disabilities.

Welcome to Lemon Grove School District Preschool!


Welcome to the Lemon Grove School District Preschool Program.  We are pleased that you have chosen a high-quality school district preschool for your child and your family.  At Lemon Grove School District we recognize the importance of a quality early childhood experience for all children and we also value the partnership with families. We realize that children learn both at home and at school, therefore our program promotes parental involvement and facilitates child learning in all areas of development: social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and language. 


Each day you will hear about the delightful experiences that we have shared together with your child. We want your child to come home every day bursting with excitement and anxious to tell you about the wonders they have discovered and the adventures they have had throughout the day. We will be encouraging your child to ask questions and to explore their own ideas, while we document what they learn through play, as they become independent learners.  For your child to enjoy and benefit from all of our learning opportunities, we ask you to partner with us by preparing them for school each day.

The preschool program is funded by the State of California, First 5 San Diego's Quality Preschool Initiative, and AKA Head Start.  The program is monitored for quality by the California Department of Education, Child Development Division, Community Care Licensing, and the Quality Preschool Initiative.  We offer part-day and full-day programs at no-cost.  Services are available to all persons who meet program eligibility requirements without regard to sex, sexual orientation, race, gender, religion, ethnicity and national origin, color, and physical or mental disability.  We welcome enrollment of children with disabilities. 

We welcome your questions, comments and ideas. Our preschool is a learning environment - not only for children but also for parents and staff. We look forward with enthusiasm to partnering with you in your child’s education.
