Free Full-Day Kindergarten starts Fall, 2019
Posted on 05/17/2019

Free Full-Day Kindergarten for all is here! Thanks to recent funding from the State of Colorado, Jeffco Public Schools will offer free full-day kindergarten at all neighborhood elementary schools for the 2019-20 school year. Read on for more information.

If my child is already enrolled for kindergarten at a Jeffco Public School and I do not want to make any changes, do I need to do anything?Three kindergarten boys sport funny hair on Crazy Hair Day

No, you are ready to go until registration time. All Jeffco families will receive a notification when registration opens in late July. If you enrolled in a full-day program expecting to pay monthly tuition – good news, you do not need to pay tuition!

My child is enrolled in a half-day kindergarten program in Jeffco next year…

  • Will the half-day program continue? Yes, every school will offer half-day kindergarten options. Please contact your school if you have questions.
  • May I change to full-day? Yes. Kindergarten students are guaranteed a full-day kindergarten spot at his/her designated neighborhood school. Choice enrolled kindergarten students may move from half-day to full-day kindergarten if there is space available.

How do I change my kindergarten enrollment or enroll in Jeffco Public Schools for the first time?

Go to to enroll or change enrollment (Round 2 choice enrollment). Click on the Apply Now button. Indicate you would like the full-day kindergarten program at your assigned neighborhood school (guaranteed) or apply for a different neighborhood, option, or charter school (space available basis).
All Jeffco Public Schools students need a Jeffco Connect account to use the EnrollJeffco system. All students have an assigned neighborhood school or may apply for a different neighborhood school, option school, or charter school now through early August. If you choice enroll and space is not available, you receive a “waitlist” position.

Jeffco Public Schools is excited to offer families this new opportunity! We hope to see your kindergarten student on August 14, 2019, in our free full-day program.
