Educational studies indicate that the earlier a child can participate in a structured learning opportunity the better the chances of success. Providing learning opportunities for our community’s younger children is a priority for LPS.
Elementary principals say that having preschool, as well as, before- and after-school childcare, is important for families with young children.

At Littleton Public Schools, we pride ourselves on kindergarten programs that are child-centered and meet the needs of the whole child. Children receive a balanced program to meet their individual needs for cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth. Our goal is to start our youngest learners on the road to a lifetime of success through a love of learning.
The state of Colorado funds full-day kindergarten programs in its public schools. Because we believe strongly in the importance of early childhood education, all LPS elementary schools provide free full-day kindergarten. In addition, all LPS elementary schools offer tuition-based before- and after-school childcare. Please visit specific school websites for more information.
Students are eligible for kindergarten if they turn five years of age on or before October 1 of the year of enrollment.
Kindergarten today is more academic and more challenging than programs of the past. While still based on an atmosphere of inquiry and play, it is the kind of active learning that teaches children to think, solve problems, share ideas, and learn language development skills. As your child’s first teachers, you can help prepare your child for kindergarten.
Children at the kindergarten level need to have their creative skills challenged. Exposure to many types of learning helps to develop the whole child.
Kindergarten registration will be held for each elementary school starting on December 1. You can register your kindergartner by completing an online pre-registration form and emailing all documents to the school registrar (link).
