Enrollment for Pre-Kindergarten (Universal Preschool)

  • Preschool teacher reading to students enjoying the book

    The Cherry Creek School District will offer free, part-time preschool at our elementary schools in the Cherry Creek School District starting in the 2024-25 school year. Preschool will be offered part-time (10 hours per week) in an AM session (8am-10:55am), or PM session (11:50am-2:45pm) format. AM/PM assignments will be determined by the school's principal.  

    CCSD registration is open to families with children currently enrolled, children with siblings currently enrolled, and/or children who have a parent/guardian currently employed by the district. 

    Will your child be 4 years old on October 1st? Follow these steps:

    Enrollment for Pre-Kindergarten is a three-step process!

    Step 1: Create a family enrollment account with the following link: ONLINE ENROLLMENT SYSTEM. You will need a valid email address to create your account.  (NOTE: This is a different account than your my.cherrycreekschools.org account).  BE SURE TO SELECT THE CORRECT SCHOOL YEAR FOR THE ENROLLMENT. If you are registering for a different school year than the current one, click on the DASHBOARD icon in the top right corner of the page.

    Step 2: Once the Family Enrollment Account has been created, you will be able to enroll your student(s). You will need to upload electronic copies of the following documents to complete the enrollment process for each student:

    • Birth certificate (translated if not in English) or one of the following alternatives:
      • Signed hospital certificate with official seal
      • Receipt from birth state that a replacement birth certificate was ordered
      • Valid passport
    • Immunization record - Please upload the COMPLETE immunization record (all pages, front and back).
    • Proof of address (view accepted document list HERE)
    • Government issued Photo ID for the parent(s) or legal guardian(s)

      Note: If you are unable to scan your documents, there are free apps online that will enable your smartphone to serve as a scanner. Or you could simply take a picture of the documents with your smartphone. Be sure that your student’s name is on all the documents and that all information is clear so that it can be easily read. For additional support, you may visit an Admissions office to have the documents uploaded.

    Step 3: You will receive an email from PowerSchool Enrollment after your student has been enrolled in the district. The email will contain your student’s information and directions for any next steps. After you have received the confirmation email with your child's school assignment and student ID number, you will need to complete the UPK state application to complete your child's enrollment.
