Licensed Preschool Program

Wheat Ridge Little Learners Program
Our Little Learners Preschool Program enrolls children from three to five years old.

Meeting either two or three times a week, your child will learn about shapes, colors and numbers through interesting weekly themes and a variety of fun activities such as crafts, games, wellness, and fitness activities. Your child will also be introduced to structured classroom situations and unstructured playtime. Not sure if your child is ready for preschool? Check out our Ready for Preschool Checklist.

Our curriculum has been carefully crafted by professionals to help ensure that your child will receive a rich, rewarding, and fun preschool experience.
