Kindergarten
Free full-day kindergarten is coming to Fairmount starting in the 2019-20 school year.
 
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) (NEA - Why We Care About K in K-12) 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 303-982-5422 to find out what program would best serve your needs.
 
HOW TO ENROLL
1. Log into or create a Jeffco Connect account (Jeffco Connect) to establish your student's record or update her or her existing record.
 
2. After updating information or creating an account go to Enroll Jeffco 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.
