Jeffco preschools utilize the Jeffco curriculum based on Colorado Academic Standards. Here is our Year at a Glance.
Our preschools utilize Tools of the Mind as a resource. The play-based resource is built on Lev Vygotsky's constructivist theory of learning and developed specifically for preschool students. Many other successful Jeffco programs are also based on this hands-on theory.
Tools of the Mind focuses on four elements that have been proven to increase the learning levels of young children: focused attention, self-regulation, deliberate memory, and strong oral language. The Jeffco curriculum along with Tools of the Mind provides several elements of a great preschool program including high quality instruction, in depth teacher training, and a district-wide, comprehensive, systemic preschool experience for all of our students who will enter Jeffco Public School kindergartens.
