• Programs and services for families with young children

    Vision: The Early Intervention Preschools in Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 provide a foundation of learning in a fun, warm, nurturing, safe, secure and inclusive environment where every child is valued as an individual. Through purposeful play, children will develop a love for learning in order to enhance self-expression, creativity, awareness of peers, and a desire to interact with and care for others. Our preschool team is committed to partnering with families and the community to build healthy relationships. Students will develop a positive perspective about themselves and others as they grow emotionally, socially, intellectually and physically as part of their first school experience.
