Preschool is the start of a child's educational journey. Our goal is to provide a positive and engaging learning environment for all of our students. Our preschools focus on each child as an individual, allowing each child to learn at his/her own pace and through new experiences. We offer a play-based curriculum that focuses on the Colorado Early Learning and Developmental Guidelines. We provide a safe, fun and engaging environment where children are free to explore and express themselves through play. All city of Aurora preschool programs are licensed by the Colorado Department of Early Childhood.

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 5 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.
