Preschool is the start of a child's educational journey. Our goal is to provide a positive and engaging learning environment for all of our students. Our preschools focus on each child as an individual, allowing each child to learn at his/her own pace and through new experiences. We offer a play based curriculum that focuses on the Colorado Early Learning and Developmental Guidelines. We provide a safe, fun and engaging environment where children are free to explore and express themselves through play. All city of Aurora preschool programs are licensed by the Colorado Office of Early Childhood.
Our mission is to offer social, physical and academic experiences that:
-Provide a nurturing, safe and fun environment with the opportunity to explore, play and learn.
-Enrich and touch the lives of the future.
-Focus on the whole child to offer positive hands-on experiences that build each child’s learning skills according to their age and ability.
-Provide quality classes lead by qualified staff at a competitive cost.
-Develop life skills & kindergarten readiness.

Congratulations to Summer Valley Preschool
for receiving the highest rating - a Level Five - from Colorado Shines Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS). Summer Valley Preschool is the first in Arapahoe County (and one of few preschools in the state) to receive this high rating.
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:
- Workforce Qualifications and Professional Development
- Family Partnerships
- Leadership, Management and Administration
- Learning Environment
- 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.
The city of Aurora offers preschool classes at five different locations. Please contact the location you are interested in for more information about specific classes and availability.
