summit school district preschool program

Honor children.  Engage families.  Inspire educators.

Our Mission

The Summit School District Preschool Program promotes high quality, developmentally appropriate, inclusive early learning experiences for all children. We value building relationships with families to foster the growth and development of the whole child.  And we seek partnerships with organizations in our community dedicated to supporting young children and their families.   


Our Values

Children learn about their world through play and interactions with others.

Children deserve a quality childhood so they become joyful, lifelong learners, active contributors to healthy communities, and productive members of society.

Play is the mechanism for young children's learning. 

Children are competent and capable learners who can make a valuable contribution to their own, and other's, learning experiences.

Our Program

We are dedicated to fostering a child's creativity and curiosity and a life-long love of learning. Our curriculum focuses on active exploration and discovery as a means of supporting all areas of development: social-emotional, language, cognitive and physical. Building social and emotional skills is at the heart of everything we do. Our learning environments are designed to cultivate social learning opportunities and a sense community. Our teachers are highly qualified and dedicated early childhood educators.

Preschool Special Education

7 months ago

Supporting All Children

We are an integrated preschool program and are dedicated to meeting the needs of all children.  We understand that all children benefit from the opportunity to interact with similar age peers and to learn about their world in a high quality inclusive early learning environment.

We provide special education and related services to preschool-aged children who have been identified with an educational disability. If eligible, an Individualized Education Program (IEP) will describe which special education and related services are required for a young learner to be successful in preschool. These services may include:

  • specialized instruction from an early childhood special education teacher

  • specialized instruction from a speech language pathologist

  • related services from an occupational therapist or physical therapist

The identification of an education disability begins with an appointment with the Child Find team.  Children may be referred to Child Find for a developmental screening by a teacher, parent, doctor, or other agency.  Information gathered during the developmental screening process will help us to determine if further assessment is needed to determine eligibility for preschool special education. If eligible, an Individualized Education Program (IEP) will be developed with specific goals to address the child's specific needs.  All special education services and related services are provided at no cost to the family.

To schedule a Developmental Screening appointment, please contact the Early Childhood Coordinator, Shelly Aleshire, at 970-368-1022 or

Child Find

Summit School District 

Child Find Program

The Summit School District Child Find Program is provided without charge to families who live in Summit School District.  The purpose of the program is to identify children from birth up to six years old who may be having difficulty in their development and to provide specialized support services when appropriate.  Parents who contact Child Find may have a concern about their child’s development in the areas of: speech and language skills, fine and gross motor skills, thinking skills, and social and emotional abilities.  Children may be referred to the Child Find Program at any time. 

The Child Find Program provides developmental screening and, when appropriate, a comprehensive multi-disciplinary team assessment to determine eligibility for Early Intervention (birth-three years old) or Preschool Special Education Services (three-five years old).  The multi-disciplinary team includes early childhood specialists and the family.  If a child is determined to be eligible, then an Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP, birth-3 years old) or an Individual Education Plan (IEP, 3-5 years old) is developed and services begin.

Developmental Screening

A developmental screening provides a snapshot of the child’s abilities in the areas of speech and language skills, fine and gross motor skills, thinking skills, and social and emotional abilities.

Multidisciplinary Assessment

A comprehensive multi-disciplinary assessment provides an in-depth look at the child’s development conducted by a team of early childhood specialists and the family.  The process includes a parent interview, a play based assessment and other assessments as appropriate.  

To schedule a free Developmental Screening appointment, please contact the Early Childhood Coordinator:

We don't want the cost of preschool to deter families from enrolling.  Our program partners with Summit Head Start 0-5, the Colorado Preschool Program (CPP), and The Summit Foundation Preschool Scholarship to offer tuition assistance to qualifying families.  Families who qualify for and are offered a slot in one or more of these programs may receive tuition assistance for some, or all, of their child's preschool tuition costs.
