Overwhelmed with Preschool & Kindergarten Options?

Preparing for Denver Kindergarten

Navigating the transition to Preschool and Kindergarten can be overwhelming and time-consuming for Denver parents – where and when do you start?  Did you know that DPS Kindergarten deadlines begin a full year before your little one starts?  Did you know that DPS has a half-day 3-year old Preschool program, and a full-day 4-year old Preschool program, and that those deadlines start 7 months before they do?

Did you know that DPS Charter Schools are public schools and participate in the choice process, like any other public school?  Did you know that some DPS Charter schools do not charge for Kindergarten?  Did you know that there are DPS Arts, Science, Dual Language, Expeditionary, International, and Montessori Special Focus public schools?

Did you know that almost all Private Schools have healthy scholarship budgets?

Our Group Information Sessions will help you understand Denver Public Schools (DPS): Deadlines; Testing; Advanced Kindergarten; Gifted & Talented (GT); Neighborhood/Boundary Schools; Charter, Magnet, and Special Focus Schools (Arts, Dual Language, International, Expeditionary, Montessori, and Science); Early and Late Entrance; Cost for Preschool and Kindergarten; Questions to ask Teachers, Principals, and during tours; Best Practices; Resources; and more! It will also cover Colorado Private Schools: Gifted, Religious, Non-Religious; Montessori, Waldorf, International, and Progressive.

It’s never too early – all ages welcome! The group information sessions are set up to best help Denver area parents of kiddos age 1-5, who are a year or more out from starting Kindergarten.

We also offer private consultations for all area school districts, as well!
