About the Colorado Preschool Program

The Colorado Preschool Program (CPP) is a state-funded early childhood education program administered by the Colorado Department of Education. Each year the General Assembly provides funding for up to 29,360 children considered to be at-risk for later school failure to attend half- or full-day preschool. CPP is managed by local school districts and their preschool advisory councils. Each participating school district is given a predetermined number of half-day positions to serve eligible children. These positions are used to serve preschoolers in either half- or full-day programs in school district settings, local childcare centers, community preschools or Head Start programs.

Preschool Policy Development Community Input Session

Please consider registering for a preschool policy development community input session to gather input from stakeholders about their hopes and fears should a universal preschool program become a reality. Input gathered will inform policymakers related to the future design of publicly funded preschool, particularly opportunities for universal preschool for four-year-olds.
