The California State Preschool Program (CSPP) is a state-funded program that offers full-day or part-day developmentally appropriate preschool instruction for eligible three- and four-year-old children. It provides a core class curriculum that is developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate for the children served. The program also provides meals and snacks to children, parent education, referrals to health and social services for families, and staff development opportunities to employees. The San Mateo County Office of Education provides services to school districts and community-based organizations which operate State Preschool Programs.
