Beginning in the 23-24 school year, the Colorado Department of Early Childhood is slated to fund at least ten hours of high-quality, voluntary preschool for every Colorado child in their year before entering kindergarten. This Universal Preschool Program (UPK) allows families to choose the right setting for their child, whether it is in a licensed community-based, school-based or home-based preschool setting.

How will this look in our region? Join us for a Universal Preschool Community Planning Meeting! This is the opportunity for parents, educators and stakeholders to ask questions and provide feedback regarding the details of this new program and how it will be implemented across the Southwest Colorado region.

When: Thursday November 3, 2022 ; 2:30PM-4:00PM
