Event designed to help Denver parents of 4-year-olds better understand Denver’s early learning landscape during preschool enrollment season.

Denver, CO, Nov. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Denver Preschool Program will host its sixth annual Preschool Showcase on Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Dahlia Center for Health and Well-Being in order to help Denver families explore early learning options for their 4-year-olds.

The Preschool Showcase is a free, one-stop event for parents to connect with representatives from numerous quality-rated programs and learn more about available resources including tuition support from the Denver Preschool Program.

The event will feature free food, dental screenings, story times and family-friendly entertainment from community partners like the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and photo ops with the Minions. Spanish translators also will be available.

“We launched the Showcase six years ago to accelerate our mission of increasing access to quality preschool in our community,” Jennifer Landrum, president and CEO of the Denver Preschool Program, said. “With so many preschool programs in the same place at the same time, the Showcase is a great opportunity for parents to gather information that will help them make the best decision for their children.”

Families who are unable to attend the 2018 Preschool Showcase are encouraged to use the Denver Preschool Program’s “Find a Preschool” tool on its website,, to search for nearby programs. Also available on the website is a “Tuition Credit Calculator” which allows parents to estimate their monthly tuition credit that can be used toward lowering the cost of preschool.

Tuition Credit Eligibility

Thanks to a voter-approved sales tax, tuition credits are available to all families—regardless of income—who live within the City and County of Denver and have a 4-year-old registered in a participating program in the year before kindergarten. Tuition credits are distributed on a sliding scale that takes into account a family’s income, the program’s quality rating and the length of day their child is enrolled.
