Enthusiastic Launch for ETE Preschool

Enthusiastic Launch for ETE Preschool


We begin our 2019-2020 school year with enthusiasm and renewed energy after reaching our goal of a solid level 5 Colorado Shines ratings, we are very proud that our quality was evident.


So far we have welcomed 42 students in part and full-day preschool classes.  In preparation, staff attend classes, prepared enrollment packets, personalized classrooms, and held a well attended evening preschool parent orientation.  We also conducted hearing and vision screenings, as well as asking parents to fill out developmental information to identify and early concerns and connect kids to resources right away for their best start.

Our children will welcome fall studying the changing seasons and making snacks together as a class using apples, as well as fresh lettuce, kale, tomatoes, strawberries, and edible herbs from our own "Children's Garden."


We continue to offer a traditional version of PAT, a wonderful individualized child development and family support program.  PAT translates scientific research on brain development into concrete strategies for supporting healthy development.  All children through kindergarten entrance are welcome to participate at no cost. Parent Educators visit children at home (or elsewhere) to provide tips and information on how to help children learn while also providing any resource support they might need.   Fall is traditionally our biggest recruitment time of year, so as preschool classes launch, we invite more families to actively participate.

There are still openings in the preschool program.
