General Program Information and Components

The San Bernardino City Unified School District’s Child Development Programs serves children birth-5 and  consists of the following: 

A full-day State and Federal Infant/Toddler Program 

A full-day State Preschool Program
A part-day State Preschool Program 


Children are provided with materials and activities that are culturally appropriate and meaningful by using books, computer software, games, music, pictures, and toys that enhance the learning experiences.

The program also provides  parent education, referrals to health, social services, and other special needs are also identified and addressed.


We participate in the Child Nutrition Program (CNP) which provides federal monies to help provide nutritious meals for children in our program. Mealtimes are valuable learning experiences in addition to providing nutrition. The Child Development Program offers breakfast, lunch, and snack to the Full Day Program and breakfast and/or lunch to the Part Day Program through the San Bernardino City Unified School District Nutrition Services.

All our centers are NUT FREE zones. No nuts or products made with nuts will be served or brought into the centers. 

Full-day State Preschool Program

The full-day program for children ages 3-5 provides a safe, nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, creative, linguistic, and cognitive development of each child. Eligibility is based on verified family income, size, and need. (Monthly family fee may be applicable)

Full-day State and Federal Infant/Toddler Program 

The Infant/Toddler program for children birth-3 years old provides full-day care at five locations throughout San Bernardino.

Part-day State Preschool Program 

The part-day program is for children 3-5 years of age. Our program provides a safe, nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, creative, linguistic, and cognitive development of each child. This free program is available to those families whose income does not exceed the State guidelines.

Quality Start San Bernardino: 

We are excited to announce that the Child Development Program is participating in Quality Start San Bernardino County (QSSB), a Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) initiative! QSSB is designed to provide quality improvement support, professional development opportunities, and educational tools to increase quality in early learning experiences in San Bernardino.

Positive Behavior Intervention and Support: 

The Child Development Program implements Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS). We  incorporate and teach behavioral expectations in our daily lesson. We support and respond to children’s behavior in a positive manner and help children engage in appropriate behavior rather than inappropriate behaviors. The Child Development Program focuses on three easy to remember behavioral expectations:
