Peyton School District provides quality, early childhood education through parent paid tuition, the Colorado Preschool Program (CPP), or Special Education Services. The preschool program operates during the school year, four days a week, with a morning and an afternoon class. The morning class is scheduled 7:40-10:40 and the afternoon class is scheduled 12:25-3:25.
**The school district does not provide bus transportation for our preschool students. Parents or caregivers are responsible for dropping off and picking up their children.**
The State of Colorado funds tuition for students and families who qualify for CPP (see below) or for students who qualify for special education services.
Tuition fees are $7/day for those who do not qualify for the above services.
Peyton Preschool enrolls children who are four years old by September 30th (starting the 2022-2023 school year) . To qualify for CPP funding, they must have at least one of the following risk factors. Three year old children are enrolled only if they have three of the following risk factors and/or qualify for special education services:

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.
