Early Learning Registration & Enrollment

  • Welcome to SUSD Early Learning - Serving students in Toddlers, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten

    Early Learning for the 2024-2025 School Year

    As we prepare for Early Learning registration and enrollment for the '24-'25 school year which begins in January 2024, we have scheduled site visits for prospective families to see our amazing classrooms. 

    These visits will be 30 minutes and will include a visit to the early learning classroom(s) on each campus. These visits DO NOT include a school tour. If you would like to participate in a school tour, please contact the school directly. 
    To RSVP for a site visit, please complete this Google form. Space is very limited, so families may bring up to 2 people per family. (You may bring your child, but she/he counts as one of the 2 per family).
    If you would like to visit more than one school, please complete this form once for each school you would like to visit.
    We will also be hosting 2 virtual parent meetings to review our programs, curriculum, registration and enrollment process. These live, virtual meetings will be Nov. 1 from 6:00pm-7:00pm and repeated Dec. 13 from 6:00-7:00pm. Links for these meetings will be available on our website by the end of September. 
    If you have any questions, please email earlylearning@susd.org.
