COLORADO PRESCHOOL AND
KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM FUND
The Colorado Preschool and Kindergarten Program provides learning opportunities for 790 four-year-old children. The program services 547 preschoolers at Aurora Public Schools and 243 at eight community sites. Each child is screened and assessed for risk factors defined by state criteria.
The Even Start program, with funds from the Federal government, allows 20 families with infants, toddlers and preschoolers to participate in a Family Literacy program. This program meets the educational needs of adults and their children at the Aurora Public School's Child Development Center.
These programs enable children, unlikely to have the preschool experience, to develop skills that serve them well in their future education experience.
Kids Tech Child Care Lab Center is a licensed early childhood facility at Pickens Technical college which delivers high quality child care and a developmentally based instructional program to children between the ages of twelve months to five years. In addition to providing child care and instruction, the center serves as a lab for training secondary students who are enrolled in the Early Childhood Education Program (ECE).
