The Aurora Public Schools Preschool Program provides high-quality early learning opportunities for students. Children who attend high-quality preschools enter kindergarten with better pre-reading skills, larger vocabularies and stronger basic math skills than those who do not.
All children ages 3 or 4 on or before October 1, 2019 are age-eligible for the APS Preschool Program. APS offers preschool classes at 33 elementary schools, four child development centers and eight community child care sites. Most APS schools offer half-day preschool.
In order for a child to be considered for the APS Preschool Program, the child’s parent or legal guardian must complete the screening process. Screening procedures for the APS Preschool Program is a three-step process:
1. Screening at ece.aurorak12.org
2. Registration at APS Centralized Admissions
3. Enrollment at the child’s school
The APS Preschool Program has limited availability. Participation in this three-step process does not guarantee placement.
Current preschool students advancing to kindergarten in August 2019 do not need to be re-registered at the Centralized Admissions office.
