Preschool Program

The Creede Early Learning Center contracts with the Creede School District to provide the Preschool Program. It follows the Creede School Districts school calendar, and runs Monday-Thursday from 8am-11am.

Students can apply for a CPP slot (see below). If the child is determined to be eligible, then the cost of attending Preschool is covered by the State. Otherwise, students may self-pay (see tuition information).

About CPP

CPP is managed by local school districts and their preschool advisory councils. Each participating school district is given a predetermined number of half-day slots to serve eligible children. Two types of slots can be allocated to districts: CPP and ECARE. CPP slots can be used to serve preschoolers and ECARE slots can be used to serve preschoolers or provide full-day opportunities for eligible kindergarteners. As defined by CPP statute, children are determined eligible for CPP and ECARE by individual and family risk factors. School district staff members work with families to gather information about their child’s development and learning, as well as life experiences.  Children who are eligible for CPP attend high-quality early childhood programs. The programs may be located in school district settings, local child care centers, community preschools or Head Start programs.
