Welcome to the Steamboat Springs Early Childhood Center!This public school early childhood program is committed to serving all children, both with and without special needs, in an inclusive preschool environment. It is the belief of the Steamboat Springs School District that students with varying needs and abilities will benefit from working together in the same classroom. The provision of inclusive educational services to young children promotes their potential for learning and enhances their understanding of, and respect for others.
NWBOCESNWBOCES special service providers and our education staff provide activities that include all children, as well as specific activities for children with individual education plans (IEP). These activities are done within the classroom environment, and complement the learning that is already taking place.
High-quality Preschool"Children who attend high-quality preschool enter kindergarten with better pre-reading skills, richer vocabularies, and stronger basic math skills than those who do not," says NIEER director W. Steven Barnett, PhD.
Where are we?We are located on the corner of 8th Street and Aspen Street. If you have questions or would like to register, please call 970-871-3177 or 970-871-3198.

**Attn Parents!** 2019-2020 CLASS PREFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT
4 months ago
At this time there are an ample amount of preferences for the 2019-2020 morning classes. Due to this influx, we want to make everyone aware that there will be some applicants that do not get their preferences honored. There are a lot of factors that go into scheduling for preschool and it is not decided on a first come-first serve basis. For those of you that already have your applications completed, nothing has been assigned to your child yet even though your application is approved. If you are a person that already requested the morning class and you are more flexible than is indicated on your form, please call Jennifer at the district office, 970-871-3198.
The afternoon sessions will likely offer smaller class sizes, giving your child more one on one time with their teacher.
Please contact us with any questions or if you feel you have a special case scenario.
Thank you and we look forward to teaching your kids next year!
