    Picture Day Is On Its Way! September 27 and September 28 are Cordova Lane's Preschool Picture Day Dates. 


    It’s time to register for preschool! Register now to secure a spot for your child for this school year.  School starts August 10, 2017. 


    Children with birthdays September 1, 2012 through September 1, 2014

    are age eligible for preschool.

    Great News!   Congratulations to the teachers and staff at four of our sites who were recently awarded a rating of five on a quality rating scale of 1-5 and five sites were rated at a four.  “Raising Quality Together” is a review conducted by Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) once a year and brings additional funds to our programs for providing a quality pre-school education for our children. 

    Income eligibility levels have been increased, so now we can serve more families.   Please see the revised scale below which was effective July 1st, 2017.  Assembly Bill 99 amended Ed Code Section 8263.1(a) “to provide that for the purposes of establishing initial income eligibility for services, a family’s adjusted monthly income must be at or below 70% of the most recent State Median income (SMI) adjusted for family size.”  Families remain eligible until their adjusted monthly income exceeds 85% of the most recent SMI adjusted for family size.
