School readiness is where it begins…The “school ready” effort focuses on providing and preparing children from birth to age five for kindergarten through proven, research-based early childhood programs. Our School Readiness Coordinator organizes services across all 18 schools and works closely with the Denver Preschool Program, DPS, and private providers to expand the number of available preschool and Kindergarten slots. In addition, we provide parent workshops covering topics such as infant and toddler development and early literacy to help parents become their child’s first teacher. By providing quality early childhood education and parent support, every child will enter Kindergarten ready to learn.
