Denver Preschool Program

Important information for families enrolling in the Denver Preschool Program this summer
The Denver Preschool Program (DPP) has extended tuition support through the summer months (June through August) for children enrolled at any of DPP’s quality-rated, community-based preschool programs within the City and County of Denver who will be attending kindergarten this fall.
To learn if summer preschool is available at a school near you, follow these simple steps:


The Denver Preschool Program is excited to announce  tuition support will be available through the summer to students attending DPP programs open during the summer months.

• Did you know that DPP makes preschool possible for children in preschool both on public school campuses, and with community child care providers? This is important because the summer DPP program will not operate on public school campuses.

• Students enrolled in DPP and currently attending a community-based DPP preschool program open during the summer can continue receiving DPP tuition support at their school. The tuition support you receive may change if your child’s participation changes during the summer months or if you change preschool programs. You can use our Tuition Credit Calculator to estimate the support you could receive.

• 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 and do not need to complete a new DPP application. Should you wish to transfer your child to a community-based school we advise you take a moment prior to filling out the enrollment paperwork and ask about their tuition rates. Community-based preschools tuition rates will differ from your DPS school.

• 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 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.
