D60 enrolling for FREE Pre-K for qualified 3- and 4-year-olds this fall

Free Preschool in D60 in 2020-21
The Pueblo School District 60 FREE Preschool program plans to open in the Fall of 2020 with in-class instruction throughout our district schools. The goal of the D60 Pre-K program is to serve students ages 3-5 with the highest need that face educational challenges due to family, economic, or developmental concerns.
Enrollment in the Pre-K program is by application only.  Normally, the application is an interview process conducted one-on-one with a district preschool staff member, but for your safety and convenience, you can now apply online!
We will offer a hands-on, developmentally-appropriate learning environment that focuses on the social, emotional, and educational needs of our preschool students through small group interactions inside and outside the classroom.
As we open, we will follow guidance from the Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment, the Colorado Department of Public Health, Governor Jared Polis, the Office of Early Childhood Child Care licensing, and CDE guidelines for schools so that parents can rest assured that their students are in a safe environment. 
Some anticipated measures may include daily temperature checks for staff and students, reporting your child’s health during the past 12-24 hrs, staggered start times, movement in a cohort group, and mask-wearing.
Again, D60 is excited to welcome our newest learners to the classroom environment! If you have a student that may be interested in enrolling, or know someone who does, please encourage them to enroll online today!
