Now Making Preschool Possible Through the Summer


Denver Preschool Program Tuition Support Available This Summer Beginning June 1 
 

Spring is here and it’s time to think about what your preschooler might do this summer. The Denver Preschool Program is excited to announce that beginning June 1, 2015, tuition support will be available through the summer to preschool students attending DPP programs open during the summer months. 

  • Students enrolled in DPP and currently attending a community-based DPP preschool program open during the summer will receive no interruption in tuition support payments made to their programs on their behalf.
  • Students enrolled in DPP and attending a Denver Public Schools preschool, which are closed during the summer months, who transfer to a community-based school for the summer need only to let their new school know they are a DPP-enrolled student.
  • Students who have not yet enrolled in DPP and are entering kindergarten this fall can still take advantage of Denver Preschool Program tuition support by enrolling today through dpp.org or calling 303.595.4DPP (4377).

“This is an incredible opportunity for our children to stay engaged in learning activities during the summer and be ready to hit the ground running for kindergarten,” Mayor Michael B. Hancock

Ensuring children have access to preschool during the summer helps prevent the summer slide and ensures they are ready for kindergarten in the fall. It is one more step toward closing the opportunity gap and creating a strong and vibrant community.

The summer program funding support is the result of Denver voters’ approval of increased funding for DPP through a dedicated sales tax increase last November.
