Free Full-Day Kindergarten

Free Full Day Kindergarten starts Fall 2019

Free full-day kindergarten started in Jeffco Public Schools in Fall, 2019.
Free full-day kindergarten was a campaign initiative from Governor Jared Polis and has been presented and signed as House Bill 19-1262 – State Funding for Full-day Kindergarten. The Polis Administration is committed to ensuring that free full-day kindergarten is available to every child in every community in Colorado.

Starting in August 2019, all full-day kindergarten programs in Jeffco will be free. For some families, this is a savings of almost $3000 a year. How is this funded
