Littleton Public Schools, in accordance with the Colorado Exceptional Children’s Education Act (ECEA) and Board Policy JEB (Entrance Age Requirements), allows students who do not meet the entrance age requirement for enrollment in kindergarten to apply for early access to kindergarten the following criteria must apply:
The decision for a child to enter school early can have a profound effect on his/her academic and social performance for the remainder of the child’s school career. It is a decision that must be taken very seriously.
Applications for Early Access to kindergarten are only accepted for the upcoming school year from January 3rd - April 1st of that year for the next school year.
No applications will be accepted after the April 1st deadline.
Our robust process for determining eligibility for Early Access is outlined below. It is important to remember that this is NOT a process to see if a student is "school ready." This process is used to determine if your child is so highly gifted they are being done a legal disservice not having access to public education.
