New Income requirements to qualify

The income requirements to qualify for this program have changed for 2019-20 and you may now be eligible, even if you applied before!

Welcome to State Preschool!

LOGOWe hope you and your family are doing well and staying healthy!   We wanted to reach out to you because we realize that a lot of our families are not able to download the packet that we emailed to everyone for re-enrollment of your preschool student.

If you were already able to download and submit your enrollment application and upload all of your documents, we will soon be contacting you.  If you have had a difficult time downloading the application, we will be having applications available for you to pick up, take home and fill out and gather all your documents and submit to our office.

Due to Covid19, we are not able to meet with families in person, however we will be placing printed out enrollment packets for you to pick up.  If this makes it more convenient for you, please stop by our office to pick one up.  We will be placing the packets in one bin and once you have it completed and have all your documents, you may submit it all in an envelope into another bin that we will have available.

You may pick up/drop off the packet and all documents at our Preschool Office only on Tuesdays starting   May 11, 2020.  They will be available at:  3150 W. 147th St. Hawthorne CA 90250 only during the hours of 9:00am-12:00pm.

If you are not able to pick up the application on Tuesdays during the assigned hours, there will also be applications in a bin outside of the District Office for pick up only at: 4161 147th St. Lawndale CA 90260.  Keep in mind that to submit the application, you may only do so at Carson School and not at the District Office.

When submitting your application and all of the documents needed, please put all of your documents in an envelope so that your information is secure. Please know that all of your documents will be secure, as Preschool Office staff will be picking up the bin at the end of the assigned times every Tuesday.

If you have any questions regarding state preschool enrollment, please address them to us to this email address from which you are receiving this update.
