Collect Information About Kindergarten
  

  • We have looked at different schools to find a kindergarten that works best for our child and our family.
  • We know about visiting schools or open houses so we can ask questions and look around the different schools.
  • We have talked to our preschool teacher and our child care provider or learned ourselves about what will be expected of our child as he or she starts kindergarten.
  • We know what documents are needed to register for kindergarten. 

HELPFUL RESOURCES:
* Colorado Department of Education kindergarten information
