27J preschool students excelling socially emotionally


Preschool students are hard at work. They are learning their numbers, letters, shapes and refining their fine and gross motor skills but these aren’t the most important skills they’ll work on in preschool.

Social and emotional development is the foundation of 27J’s Preschool Program. Children who experience preschool in 27J learn critical skills such as managing emotions, developing a positive self-concept and socialization with peers and adults. 


Colorado Preschool Program applications are currently being accepted for eligible district 3- and 4-year-old children. Click here to learn more about what sets our preschool program apart and how you can apply.
