        Welcome to a New Year of Preschool! In-Person Classes Begin on Tuesday, September 8!

        We are so happy to announce that we have been cleared by Larimer County Health and Environment and our state Licensing Specialist from the Colorado Office of Early Childhood to open our doors again in September and welcome back all of our wonderful families! Our teachers and board of parent volunteers have been working hard to put new procedures in place to ensure the safety of our students and staff. While a few additional procedures need to be followed, we remain committed and most concerned with providing our young students with the nurturing and stimulating environment that is so important for their first adventure in education. These are temporary changes, and we plan on returning to our regular schedule when possible.

        Drop-off – Parents will meet their child’s teacher outside the playground gate. Children will need a temperature check (100.3 degrees or lower). Each class will meet separately outside.

        Snack Time – For now, we will need parent helpers to bring individually-wrapped, prepackaged snacks when they parent help.

        Classrooms – We will need to limit table activities to 4 children per table. Additional sanitizing of surfaces and items will take place during class. Our teachers will help keep large groups of children from gathering in one area.

        Pick-up – Children will walk outside with their teacher to their parents.

        Parent Helpers – We would like to have the same helpers aid on consecutive days as much as possible to limit exposure. We realize this may not work for all families, and we are happy to help work out alternate days. Before entering the preschool, parent helpers will also need their temperatures taken. While in the preschool, please social distance from other adults.

        Masks – Following the guidelines of  the Colorado Office of Early Childhood, students, parent helpers, and teachers will all wear masks. We know this may be difficult, especially if your child hasn't been wearing one. To help them prepare, please start slowly having them wear a mask and build the habit over time.

        Hand Washing – Children will wash their hands after coming inside, before snack, and after using the restroom as usual, but will include more frequent and longer hand washing.

        Isolation – If a child becomes ill, we will isolate that child in the hallway and notify the parent immediately.

        We are grateful for your patience and understanding while we develop these new procedures. We will continue to work closely throughout the year with our licensing specialist and the Health Department to make alterations as conditions change.  Please, do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. We have missed our fabulous Community Preschool families and can’t wait to see you!

        We are looking forward to a great 2020–2021 school year!

        Our Preschool Will Be Closed through May. But We Will Reopen in the Fall for the 2020–2021 School Year

        After discussing the COVID-19 pandemic with the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment, our state licensing specialist, and other area preschools, we have made the very difficult decision to close our preschool for the remainder of the 2019–2020 year. We will reopen in the Fall.

        These times are unsettling and unexpected, and we're heartbroken and so sorry that we will not be able to end the year with you and your children. Teachers and board members are working on a plan to stay connected to all of our families during this difficult time, and we'll be in touch. For now, we hope you and your children are safe and healthy.

        If you have questions about tuition reimbursement, please contact the treasurer. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support.

        We will get through this together.
