Welcome to Preschool!
At BVSD preschools, all children shine.
Boulder Valley School District's integrated Learning program welcomes 3 and 4 year old children who have qualified for Universal Preschool, have an individualized education plan, or who pay tuition, all in one classroom.
Because children’s brains and bodies grow at such a rapid pace from birth to age five, the preschool years are a critical time for them to build a strong foundation of knowledge and skills. Our integrated preschool program offers an exceptional opportunity to do just that.
Creativity is the tool, knowledge is the outcome.
High-quality preschool programs fuel children’s natural curiosity. Our preschools use the ‘Creative Curriculum,’ which is all about active learning. Children are experiencing, moving, making things and talking about their discoveries. They do not just watch and listen but instead are inspired to explore independently and with others. The skills and knowledge they build prepare them to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.
Learning and enrichment.
BVSD's Preschool Learning and Enrichment program offers part-time preschool (15 hours) at all of its 24 locations and full time preschool (30 hours) at 16 of them.
Learning classrooms offer high-quality, play-based instruction and Enrichment classrooms offer an optional extended day that expands on the lessons in the Learning classroom.
Both Learning and Enrichment classrooms are capped at 18 students.
Colorado Universal Preschool Program (UPK)
All four year olds receive 15 hours per week of preschool at no-cost to the family. Qualifying 4 year olds can receive 30 hours.
Three year olds who have an Individualized Education Plan can also enroll in BVSD preschools at no cost, for 15 hours per week.
Families of 3 and 4 year olds can also choose to pay tuition for hours not covered by UPK. Tuition is $620 a month for Learning and an addtional $620 a month for Enrichment. Each tuition seat requires a $75 application fee ($150 to apply to both Learning and Enrichment.)
This is the start of something big.
