    Mission statement

    Cherry Creek Early Childhood Program is dedicated to providing quality early childhood education to preschool children and families of all cultures, abilities, and circumstances in the Cherry Creek School District.



    Our purpose is to provide a quality early childhood experience for all children. We will ensure partnerships with children, families, community organizations, staff, and district departments are a key part of our classrooms. Our goal is that all children will be prepared for the demands of and opportunities for their academic career and life. The majority of our classrooms have an inclusive model as one of the primary components. Classes will have up to 15-16 children with one ECE Teacher and one to two assistants. The class will include children who are typically developing, those at risk, as well as those with special needs. A few of our classrooms are dedicated to children who are of young three's age, providing the focus these younger students need.


    PLEASE NOTE:   In addition to the teachers and teaching assistant(s), all classrooms are supported by Early Childhood Special Educators, Speech and Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists and Mental Health Providers.
