During Preschool Roundup, parents of new preschool students will discover how easy it is to register their child for high quality, affordable preschool offered at 25 locations across the district.
The Cherry Creek Schools Preschool program features an extremely low staff-to-student ratio and a comprehensive, scientifically-based, early childhood curriculum. The program helps youngsters develop the academic and social skills they need for kindergarten and beyond.
"We are an exceptional preschool program,” said Stacey Peoples, director of Early Childhood Education for Cherry Creek Schools. “We also have an exceptional, one-stop registration process that is very parent-friendly and kid-friendly.”
Children who will be at least 3 years old by August 15 are eligible for preschool. To register a new student for preschool, parents can go to the Preschool page on the Cherry Creek Schools website. There, parents can learn how to schedule an enrollment appointment. Parents will receive a reminder email two days before their appointment.
During Preschool Roundup, appointments are available on Wednesday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and some Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. to accommodate parents who work during the week. At the enrollment appointment, a Cherry Creek Schools Early Childhood expert will help parents fill out the district enrollment forms and any state forms that may be necessary.
Parents can request that their child attend morning or afternoon classes, four days a week. Some families may be eligible for free or reduced tuition if their child has special needs or qualifying risk factors.
During their enrollment appointment, parents can select their priorities for placement. Parents will be notified of their placement and their child’s new teacher in May. The new preschool year begins in August.
