Free Full Day Kindergarten

Free K
Free full-day kindergarten is here at Mortensen Elementary

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR JEFFCO FAMILIES:

Kindergarten is currently not a requirement in Colorado. However, research shows that starting students on their academic path in kindergarten (ages 5-6) promotes children's enthusiasm, initiative, persistence and engagement in learning.

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.

Jeffco will continue to offer half-day kindergarten programs as well. Call the school at 303-982-0022 to find out what program would best serve your needs.

HOW TO ENROLL

1. Log into or create a Jeffco Connect account to establish your student's record or update her or her existing record. 

2. After updating information or creating an account go to EnrollJeffco to enroll in your neighborhood school or apply for a school of your choice. 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

As with any new program, many questions arise. How is this funded? How is this staffed? What if I already registered for half-day kindergarten? Please see the Jeffco Public School's District website FAQ page for details.
