School Closure Due to Coronavirus
The Summit County Board of Directors has chosen to close Summit County Preschool from Monday, March 16 through Friday, April 17th. We are anticipating to reopen on Monday, April 20th. We will communicate any changes to this schedule as soon as the decision is made.
Summit County Preschool is a non-profit, private preschool. We serve children ages 8 weeks to 5 years 11 months of age. Our parents pay a monthly tuition; however, we also rely on annual fundraisers and donations for our school to function. Our aim is to keep tuition as low as we can for our parents. If you would like to make a donation, please click on the "Donate" button above. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit, so all donations are tax-deductible. Please call us at 970-668-5508 if you have any questions.

• Social Development: Help children learn to get along with others, feel comfortable in group situations, trust their environment, communicate and cooperate with peers and adults and feel that they are part of a group. During Preschool years, social development is about socialization, the process by which children learn the values and behaviors accepted by society. Social development is also about being a competent and confident person.
• Emotional Development: Help children discover and accept one’s self and feelings, experience pride and self-confidence, develop independence and self-control.
• Physical Development: Help children gain control of and use their bodies with confidence, increase coordination of large and small muscle groups, and develop eye-hand coordination. Physical development includes children’s gross (large muscle) and fine (small muscle) motor skills.
• Cognitive Development: Help children use their minds for communicating, problem-solving and reasoning, interacting with their environment, and organizing their knowledge base. Cognitive development refers to the mind and how it works. It involves how children think, how they see their world, and how they use what they learn.

Quality Rated: Level 4
Colorado has implemented the Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) that measures the quality of early learning programs in Colorado on a 5 level system. This evaluation assesses our learning environment, family partnerships, training and education of our staff, adult-to-child ratios, and lastly, accreditation. Points are earned in each of these areas and are added together to place a center on the 5 level scale. Since 2006, Summit County Preschool has been Quality Rated through Qualistar. In the fall of 2014, SCP earned 4 stars. In the fall of 2019, SCP earned a level 4 through the QRIS system. The teachers and staff at Summit County Preschool have worked very hard to maintain this quality rating and, on a daily basis, uphold the quality factors that have placed SCP at a level 4. Such quality factors
maintained are: strong family
partnerships, age appropriate
learning experiences, positive
interactions between teachers and
children, effective health and safety
procedures, and ongoing training
and education of our staff. These
critical areas contribute to the high
quality of care provided to our
children and families!
