Children who turn 4 years old by July 1st are eligible for the Peyton Preschool Program. We would love to enroll your preschooler in our new, engaging early childhood program! We have a morning class from 7:40 a.m. to 10:40 a.m. and an afternoon class from 12:25 p.m. to 3:25 p.m. We have an exciting new curriculum that is literature and play-based. Your child will learn through classic stories like Little Red Riding Hood, Peter and the Wolf, and nursery rhymes and poems! All the skills they need to learn are interwoven into the lessons – letter recognition and reading readiness, number recognition and number sense, colors, shapes and more! We have a new sensory path, designed and painted using funds from our Peyton Way Foundation grant. Stop by the Elementary School office for an enrollment packet, or contact Kim Corey at 749-0170 ext. 317 for more information.
Students need to be dropped off and picked up as they are not able to ride the buses yet. Parents or caregivers must sign students in and out each day.
Students may bring a backpack to take home papers and library books, and a lunch or snack bag. Children will bring a healthy snack each day. Milk is provided. We use disposable cups for water in hopes of minimizing the spread of germs, so please don’t send a water bottle to school.
No other supplies are needed at this time.
My name is Kim (Keen) Corey, and I have been a part of the Peyton teaching community for nearly 20 years. I began as a special education paraprofessional, and earned my elementary teaching degree through UCCS and Colorado Christian University. My three boys graduated from Peyton. I am licensed pre-k through 6th grade, but my heart has always been for the “tiny people!” I spent 5 years teaching 2nd grade in D49, and then returned to Peyton to teach kindergarten. I am excited for the opportunity to grow the preschool program and to serve Peyton families!
I am Bronwyn Peterson and I have been working as a para in Peyton’s preschool program since the 2015-2016 school year. I previously taught Pre-K in Colorado Springs and did licensed home child care for 15 years. I have lived in Peyton since 1994 and have raised my three children here. I love the staff and families in our district and I love our Peyton community!
