Flexible Programs for Working Parents

Flexible Programs for Working Parents

CDA Preschools offer two year-round program options with benefits like longer hours and limited breaks to ensure we can meet the needs of working families.

Full-day program

Services are offered Monday-Friday  7:00am – 6:00pm

Part-day program

Services are offered in morning or afternoon sessions that are three hours long

Our curriculum is designed to create a love for learning. We use an emergent approach that permits learning through your child’s own interests, actions and passions. This approach to curriculum capitalizes on the strengths of the individual child and focuses on the crucial areas of early learning and development for school readiness.

We provide breakfast, hot lunch and an afternoon snack, served daily family style. We designed these communal gatherings to be learning opportunities; children learn to serve themselves, develop good habits, and get to know what their body needs. Teachers engage in relaxed social time while making plans for the day based on the interests of the children with emphasis on self-image and language development.

At CDA we believe that children are learning all the time. We’ve designed our facilities to include outdoor classroom areas that encourage exploration and a connection to nature. Children learn through hands on activities in science, math, art, music, language and literacy in fresh air, getting close to nature.

Our literacy program, “Storytime!” partners with parents (as a child’s first teacher) to develop and nurture their child’s love for reading. Each month, their child receives a new book, resources on how to read as a family, and tips to build healthy reading habits and a home library! By increasing home literacy parents support their child’s healthy development. Sponsor a Year ofStorytime!

CDA is proud to be consistently rated at the highest tiers by the First 5 San Diego Quality Preschool Initiative. This program uses a comprehensive quality rating and improvement system (QRIS) to ensure program quality.
