HRCA’s Preschool program is based on a play environment with developmentally appropriate activities which give children the foundation for future academic learning. The children will participate in art, music, finger plays, dramatic play, block building, sand play, puzzles, and beginning hand writing skills. Through these activities children develop physical, emotional, social, creative, and cognitive skills.
Our Preschool program is licensed with the state of Colorado and therefore maintains the integrity of licensed programs in policy and procedures.
There is a $90 Member, $110 Program Guest, non-refundable annual registration fee, per child to be paid after Director placement.
