WHAT THIS MEANS FOR JEFFCO FAMILIES

Kindergarten is currently not a requirement in Colorado. However, research shows that starting students on their academic path in kindergarten (ages 5-6) http://www.nea.org/home/18180.htm] promotes children's enthusiasm, initiative, persistence and engagement in learning. 

Starting in August 2019, all full-day kindergarten programs in Jeffco will be free. For some families, this is a savings of almost $3000 a year.

Jeffco will continue to offer half-day kindergarten programs as well. Call the school at 303-982-8324 to find out what program would best serve your needs.

As with any new program, many questions arise. How is this funded? How is this staffed? What if I already registered for half-day kindergarten? Please see the Jeffco Public School's District website https://www.jeffcopublicschools.org/schools/enrollment/free_full_day_kindergarten/fdk_faq
