Preschool

2020-2021 Preschool

The 2020-2021 school year has begun and will run through the week of May 17, 20221.  Registration for continuous preschool classes is open to the public. Space is limited in classes! Please contact the location you are interested in attending to register for the remainder of the school year. A payment of the first month of tuition is due at the time of registration to secure your child's slot. 

Remote Learning

The city of Aurora Preschool Program, like many of the surrounding school districts, will be starting our school year remotely, with students learning at home through the end of October. The health, safety and wellbeing of our students, family, and community are our top priority. We will be closely monitoring the local coronavirus developments and will determine whether we will be able to begin in-person classes starting in November.


This past spring, we were able to create a virtual online learning experience for our families when the school districts closed early for the school year. We have taken what we learned from this experience, as well as the feedback we received from families of what they needed and wanted for their child’s online experience to develop our remote learning plans for the 2020/2021 school year.

We will be utilizing our Class Dojo virtual platform to provide video lessons, worksheets, and portfolio assignments as we did previously. We will also be adding in daily connection circles and small group lessons through live virtual meetings, which will allow families to interact live with teachers and other classmates. Home learning resources will also be provided as well as routine phone check ins with families to help ensure each child flourishes during at home learning.

Congratulations to all city of Aurora Preschools for your continued commitment to quality from Colorado Shines Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS).  

Colorado Shines is a rating and improvement system for licensed early care and learning programs. Using proven methods, it measures overall school quality based on five areas:

  1. Workforce Qualifications and Professional Development
  2. Family Partnerships
  3. Leadership, Management and Administration
  4. Learning Environment
  5. Child Health Promotion

Research consistently shows that children who attend quality early care and learning programs are more likely to do well in school and less likely to drop out or need remedial education. Quality early education helps children start strong and the benefits last forever.
