When is registration?
Registration for currently enrolled families happens during mid-January, with new families registering in person on a day during the first week of February. Parents know at that time what their child’s enrollment status is. If there are not available openings, children are placed on a wait list. Please read through our admission section to learn more.
How does the wait list work?
We are unable to accept all of the wonderful families who apply at the time of registration. Those who remain on the wait list are notified as soon as there is an opening either before school starts or during the school year. The registration fee is not cashed until an opening is offered to a family and they accept.
What kind of tuition assistance is available?
Tuition assistance is available for threes, pre-k 4’s and pre-k 5’s only. Denver city and county families with children entering their last year of preschool must apply through the Denver Preschool Program for financial assistance before applying to Treasureland. Financial aid through Treasureland is offered to families who either don’t qualify for DPP funds or those needing additional assistance beyond what is offered through DPP. Please go here for more information regarding financial assistance.
What kind of child/family thrives at Treasureland?
The children here are a diverse group of personalities, with various learning styles and different developmental growth patterns. Children in this environment seem to enjoy strong peer relationships within their classrooms and exhibit tremendous developmental growth from the meaningful relationships formed by our deeply engaging staff, an environment that provokes exploration and discovery and interesting activities that entice them to love learning. Families who understand and share our basic philosophy and play-based approach, are interested and willing to partner with the staff on behalf of their child’s growth and development and who desire to build relationships with others in this community tend to have a positive experience at Treasureland Preschool. Although not a parent cooperative school, there are opportunities for parents to share talents, interests, strengths, and life experiences with one another, as well as offering hands-on volunteer time in and out of the classroom.
How are families supported in this environment?
Drop-off and pick-up are usually a bit hectic but teachers communicate with parents at that time if the information is not of a confidential nature. Otherwise, teachers communicate through weekly newsletters, parent-teacher conferences, phones calls or emails. There is a monthly Director newsletter outlining the month’s events as well as giving general parent information. As partners in the effort to make a child’s school experience as positive as possible, we encourage parents to bring concerns, questions or comments to us at any time. Staff members make every attempt to be accessible and available as resources and are willing to meet whenever a parent has concerns, questions or comments.
