About UPK – Universal Preschool Colorado 

Universal Preschool (UPK) ensures that each child in the year preceding kindergarten eligibility benefits from a half-day (15 hours per week) state-funded, voluntary preschool experience, starting in the 2023-24 school year. Three-year-olds meeting qualifying criteria can participate in part-time (10 hours per week) preschool programming. Families with children in the pre-kindergarten year, meeting certain criteria, are also eligible for an extra 15 hours integrated into the half-day program, providing full-day programming.

Distinguished for supporting a child’s development, high-quality preschool programs offer enduring social, academic, and economic advantages. This program’s launch, a consequence of the voter-approved Proposition EE, underscores Colorado’s enduring commitment to children and families, ensuring their recognition, well-being, and success. ABC Child Development Centers’ UPK empowers families to choose the optimal environment for their child in a licensed, community-based preschool program. With Preschool options available at six locations in Greeley, Windsor, and Ault, ABC provides part-time programs for three-year-olds, as well as half-day and full-day options for four-year-olds. If your child is already attending ABC, they may have the chance to continue, with universal preschool funding potentially alleviating current tuition expenses.
