Early learning

Rocky Mountain PBS is committed to the life-long learning of our community, starting with the earliest years. We are proud to partner with Colorado parents, caregivers, nonprofit organizations, and educators to support families and children.

Universal Preschool Colorado

Universal Preschool (UPK) Colorado allows families to choose the right setting for their child, whether it is in a licensed community-based, school-based or home-based preschool setting. Families of children in the year before they are eligible for kindergarten, and qualifying 3-year-olds, can apply.
