    Our ECE curriculum is grounded in the Colorado Early Learning and Development Guidelines and we provide a compassionate, supportive and encouraging environment for students to practice and develop important social and emotional skills. 

    In preschool, children begin building a solid foundation for learning with early introductions to numbers, shapes, sounds, and letters. Children also grow their social skills, learning how to share, contribute and collaborate with peers. Numerous academic studies show children who attend preschool enter kindergarten with appropriate social skills, which leads to better pre-reading skills, richer vocabulary, and stronger basic math skills.

    We serve more than 600 preschool students at schools in all corners of the district. Students who will be 3-or-4-years-old by October 1 of the current school year are eligible to be screened for preschool.
