Preschool Information
Due to district growth, we are unable to provide tuition based preschool for the next year.  Should anything change in this status we will notify families immediately but in the mean time please seek and accept other community based opportunities at this time.

General Preschool Information

Preschool classrooms are located at Tozer Primary, Grandview Elementary, Range View Elementary and at Skyview Elementary.


Each class is staffed by a certified teacher and a para-professional.  There are no more than 14 children in each class.  Our program is an integrated program and each class has some students with special needs and students who attend under the Colorado Preschool Program.  Each class has an opportunity to access the school library, participates in a large motor obstacle course and group language activity once a week.  Speech/Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and other related service personnel provide services to special needs students within the classroom.


Children participate in a curriculum that offers rich experiences to help them develop their social, communication, cognitive, self help, fine and gross motor skills as well as opportunities that help support pre-readiness skills for Kindergarten.  We use nationally recognized Creative Curriculum GOLD widely regarded as a forward-thinking, comprehensive, rigorously researched curriculum approach that honors creativity and respects the role that teachers play in making learning exciting and relevant to every child as well as Preschool Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS), Hand Writing Without Tears and Zoophonics in each classroom.
Preschool classes are held Tuesday through Friday.
Morning hours are 8:05 to 10:50 a.m. and afternoon hours are 12:05 to 2:50 p.m.
