We don't want the cost of preschool to deter families from enrolling. Our Preschool Program partners with the Summit Pre-K (SPK) Program, the Colorado Preschool Program (CPP), and Summit Head Start 0-5 to offer tuition assistance to qualifying families. Families who qualify for and are offered a slot in our preschool program, may receive tuition assistance to cover some, or even all, of their child's preschool tuition costs.
To help simplify the process, families are able apply to see if they qualify for one or more of these programs directly through the online School District Preschool Application, no need to submit separate applications for these programs.
Summit Pre-K Program (Measure 1a)
The Summit Pre-K Program (SPK) helps to make high quality preschool possible for all Summit County 4-year olds in the year before they enter Kindergarten. To offset the high cost of quality preschool, SPK provides monthly tuition credits to families who meet the required criteria.
