About Universal Preschool in Adams 14
Beginning in the 2023-2024 school year, all children who are four years old by Oct. 1, 2023, can attend Adams 14 Universal Preschool (full-day preschool) for free! Eligible children who are three years old by Oct. 1, 2023, may also be able to participate.
While the state of Colorado provides funding for half-day preschool (15 hours), Adams 14 offers full-day preschool at no cost to its families. Adams 14 believes that it is important to build a strong learning foundation as early as possible so that students can academically perform better throughout their school years.
