Early Childhood Programming

Early childhood education is offered at every elementary school in the district and serves children between the ages of 12 months and 5 years. We run two types of programs: toddler and preschool programming. In the Roaring Fork Schools' early childhood programs, we focus on the whole child, which means taking into consideration all of the child’s developmental areas: physical, social/ emotional, cognitive and language. We recognize individual children for their strengths, talents, and diverse needs, and customize our approach to ensure that all children experience success and growth towards meeting their learning goals. Parents who wish to enroll after the registration period should call the school directly to ask about availability or call 384-6000 for more information.

Core Beliefs & Values

We believe in: facilitating learning through play; building relationships; family partnerships; nurturing every child; maintaining safe learning environments; developing character skills; honoring the culture, languages, and values of our families; and being reflective of the communities in which we live.


Preschool and toddler classes run on a school schedule, including observing holidays and school breaks. Classes are closed during the summer when schools are closed. Each day, regular care runs from 8:15am to 3:15pm, and extended care runs from 7:15am to 4:45pm.
