Grand Junction, CO – Families of children who will be 3 or 4 years old on or before July 15, 2019, who are interested in public preschool are invited to attend an Early Childhood Preschool Open House between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, at one of 25 local schools and facilities. 

Families can visit with teachers, pick up a questionnaire, and learn more about the application and eligibility process for children to attend a District 51 preschool program. Those who cannot make it to an open house on March 5 can pick up an application between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Hawthorne Building at 410 Hill Ave. Parents/guardians also must present a child’s immunization records and birth certificate in order to register.
