Denver Preschool Program Helps ALL Families Find and Pay for Preschool

August 2, 2022

Do you live in the City and County of Denver and have a 4-year-old enrolled in preschool, or ready for preschool? Then you NEED to read on!

The Denver Preschool Program is helping ALL families find and pay for preschool this school year. ALL families will receive at least some of their preschool costs covered, and some families receive up to 100% coverage of tuition costs.

ALL families will receive at least some of their preschool costs, and some families will receive up to 100% of tuition costs.

Selecting a preschool for your little learner is an opportunity to begin their formal academic journey and lay a foundation for a lifetime of success. For 15 years, the Denver Preschool Program (DPP) has helped families in the City and County of Denver access and afford high-quality early learning opportunities.

In collaboration with 260 preschools, DPP offers tuition support to ALL Denver resident families — regardless of income and immigration status — who have a 4-year-old enrolled in a participating school in their year before kindergarten. In some cases, families may even receive up to 100% coverage on tuition costs. That means free preschool for up to one year!

In 2021, the Denver Preschool Program launched “Preschools for 3s” to increase earlier access to, and enrollment in, high-quality early childhood education programs while reducing costs for Denver families with lower incomes.

In addition to DPP’s longstanding model, which provides tuition credits to all Denver families with a 4-year-old regardless of income, the Preschool for 3s pilot program prioritizes families based on financial need. The goal is to serve as many families with the greatest need as possible. Then, if funding allows, DPP will expand to include all families.
