What is Denver Public Schools Preschool Program? How is it different from Denver Preschool Program?
Nearly all elementary and K-8 schools that are a part of Denver Public Schools offer preschool and kindergarten programs. Check with the Early Education Department at 720-423-8213 or with your neighborhood school for offerings. The Denver Preschool Program (DPP) is the result of a voter approved initiative to provide tuition credits for parents and is open and voluntary for all Denver children the year before they are eligible for kindergarten. A Denver family may use the tuition credit with any preschool provider who is licensed by the state, including Denver Public Schools. When a parent of a preschooler in their year before kindergarten (usually 4-year olds) applies to preschool in Denver Public Schools, she is automatically enrolled in Denver Preschool Program.
