Get Involved!

Our school offers some great programs to help foster your child's education as well as social skills. We strive to incorporate programs that will assist your child's positive growth, both now and for the future.

Welcome to Juarez-Lincoln Preschool

We are very excited to have you join our preschool family! The staff of the Chula Vista Elementary School District (CVESD) welcomes you and your child to our early education program.

Our Philosophy

We believe that each child is a unique, capable individual. 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 Information

Enrollment is based upon criteria and priorities established By Title 5 of the California Code of regulations. Documentation is necessary to determine eligibility. The Chula Vista Elementary School District Preschool Program serves primarily residents living within the Chula Vista Elementary School District boundaries. Children must be at least 3 or 4 years old by September 1st. Preference will be given to children who turn 4 by September 1st and will attend Kindergarten the following year. Children must be immunized; family income must fall within state guidelines for low income according to family size.

Preschool Program Staff

Every class is led by a qualified teacher and has a ratio of one adult for every eight students. Every teacher holds a college degree and a Child Development Permit from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. All Instructional Assistants have taken college classes in child development.

The cafeteria is open on all school days, including minimum days. Breakfast is offered in the cafeteria each morning starting at 7:45 AM. Each student is issued a meal card that will be debited each time the child eats breakfast or lunch. Students who use their cards will receive lunch, even if their lunch accounts have a negative balance and parents are responsible for the cost. Prepayments for at least 5 meals are encouraged.
