Thanks for taking the first step in learning more about Preschool for 3s, Denver Preschool Program’s program to provide tuition credits for 3-year-olds enrolled in a high-quality DPP-participating community-based preschool program (this does not include Denver Public Schools’ ECE programs).
Through our Preschool for 3s Program, we aim to equitably expand access to quality preschool for a limited number of children who turn three by October 1. This program is in addition to our traditional tuition credit for 4-year-olds. There’s never been a better time to be three!
**Please note** If your child attends a school that participates in Head Start, please reach out to your preschool provider to apply for Head Start funding first. Due to those available federal funds, we will not be opening Preschool for 3s spots for Head Start families immediately, but instead waitlisting those students until August 1.

Denver Preschool Program has supported tuition credits for all 4-year-olds in Denver since 2006. If your child turns 4 by October 1, learn more about applying for tuition assistance here.
