It is the mission of the MJUSD Child Development Program to provide the highest quality of services to our youngest of students in a safe, nurturing, positive and engaging learning environment.  
Our Child Development Program is a place that inspires social-emotional confidence to facilitate the growth of the whole child.  Children are provided opportunities to explore, manipulate and take risks by engaging in a safe, nurturing and enriching environment that embraces individuality and a strong sense of community.
As collaborative educators, we are intentional, passionate and motivated to grow partnerships with families to create an empowering early education experience.
  • State Preschool Program
Our Preschool Educational program is developmentally, culturally and linguistically appropriate and includes activities that facilitate a child’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development.  Our program is inclusive of children with special needs and encourages respect for the feelings and rights of others. 
  • School-Age Children’s Center Program
Our Children’s Center Educational program provides educational and socialization in a safe and healthy environment, conducive to the development and growth of young students. 
  • School Readiness Program
Our School Readiness Program targets children ages 0-5 and their family members and has been designed to promote parental resilience, social connections, knowledge of parenting and child development while promoting each child’s physical, social and emotional development.
