Colorado Preschool Program
The Colorado Preschool Program (CPP) is a state-funded early childhood education program administered by the Colorado Department of Education. CPP provides access to quality early childhood education for children who lack overall learning readiness. Each year the General Assembly provides preschool funding for 20,160 children who have certain risk factors in their lives that are associated with later challenges in school. In 2013, 2014, and 2018, the General Assembly expanded CPP through the Early Childhood At-Risk Enhancement (ECARE) program which provided more flexible funding to offer half- or full-day kindergarten for an additional 9,200 young children. With the expansion, CPP can serve as many as 29,360 eligible children each year.
