School Readiness & Preschool Department

Lodi Unified School District operates numerous preschool classrooms (Head Start & State Preschool) on a number of campuses throughout the district.  These programs are funded with grant funding and have eligibility requirements including an income limit based on the number of people in the family.  These classes serve 3 and 4 year old children five days per week for 3, 3.5 or 6 hours daily, depending on the funding source.  With a few exceptions, these preschools follow the district’s Modified Traditional calendar.  Both Head Start and State Preschool programs have a strong focus on family engagement and parent participation in the classrooms.  There is also a home visiting component in both programs.  All classrooms are licensed by the Department of Social Services.  For more information or a Waiting List application,  please call the School Readiness & Preschool department at 331-7252 for more information.
