Parent/Tot: Back by popular demand, this class is an opportunity for parents/caregivers and their children ages 2 to 2 1/2 years to explore and learn together!  Each class session will include a parent education topic relevant for parents of young children.  Class structure will allow for open communication between parents and teachers to support understanding and implementation of learning activities specific to toddlers.  Class meets for 2 hours on Thursday morning at the Meadowood Preschool.

Tiny Tots: Class is designed for children ages 3 years. This program meets 2-4 days a week for 2 ½ hours to 2 ¾ hours each day. Must be 3-years-old by October 1st of the school year.

A variety of specialty classes are also offered throughout the school year at various locations. Specialty classes are shorter in length and may focus on a specific topic or celebration. 


Congratulations to all city of Aurora Preschools for your continued commitment to quality from Colorado Shines Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS).  

Colorado Shines is a rating and improvement system for licensed early care and learning programs. Using proven methods, it measures overall school quality based on five areas:

  1. Workforce Qualifications and Professional Development
  2. Family Partnerships
  3. Leadership, Management and Administration
  4. Learning Environment
  5. Child Health Promotion

Research consistently shows that children who attend quality early care and learning programs are more likely to do well in school and less likely to drop out or need remedial education. Quality early education helps children start strong and the benefits last forever.
