Kinder Kids & Tiny Tots Preschool Information

Kinder Kids (4-5 years)
Children must be 4 years old by Oct. 1 and planning to attend kindergarten in August 2024. This continuous school-year program prepares your child for kindergarten while focusing on the “learning is fun” philosophy. The program emphasizes social, emotional, and cognitive development along with the State of Colorado Early Learning Development Guidelines (ELDG’s). 

Tiny Tots (3-4 years)
Children must be 3 years old by Oct. 1. This great beginning program prepares your child for Kinder Kids. The program develops social, emotional, cognitive, and fine motor skills in line with the State of Colorado Early Learning Development Guidelines (ELDG’s). 

State of Colorado Licensed Program
Kinder Kids and Tiny Tots age requirements are based on the age as of Oct. 1 of the school year you are registering for. The Kinder Kids and Tiny Tots programs are state licensed as small and large childcare programs. 
Parents will receive our Parent Handbook and ePACT link in mid-July.  Please call 303-658-2222 if you do not receive these within three days of registration after July 24, 2023.

ePACT Profile: You will receive an email from ePACT in the summer prior to school starting. For more information about ePACT, see page 17 of our Parent Handbook (linked above). In brief, ePACT is where we store health profiles and emergency contact information. This information is a licensing requirement and profiles must be completed to attend school. Even if you have used ePACT previously (with City of Westminster or another organization), you will still be asked to verify or update any expired information. 
All ePACT profiles and required forms MUST be completed in order for your child to start school.  All forms are considered current for the school calendar year, September to May. 
Kinder Kids and Tiny Tot program participants must submit the following in ePACT in order to participate: 

  • Emergency card (due immediately)
  • Immunization record (due immediately) 
  • Medical release from a physician stating the child is in good medical condition (due immediately)

Monthly payments must be made by the second day of each month (October to April) after the school year begins to maintain your child’s spot, or their space will be forfeited.
