Get Tuition Support
We know the cost of a high-quality preschool can be a challenge for families of all income levels. That is why we provide monthly tuition credits to parents/guardians of 4-year-olds. Start your application by clicking the button below.
Tuition Support Eligibility Guidelines
We offer tuition credit to families who meet the following criteria:
- Your family must live within the City and County of Denver
- Your child must be 4-years-old on or before Oct. 1 of the current school year
- Your child must be enrolled at a participating DPP preschool
Learn more about our eligibility requirements.
In addition to the tuition credits that DPP already offers ALL Denver families who meet these eligibility guidelines, there is now additional support available to families to cover up to 100% of preschool tuition costs. Learn more!
