Early Learning in Jeffco

Jeffco early learning programs provide a childhood experience filled with play, adventure, investigation, exploration and friendship. Each child is unique and all children can learn. Jeffco’s programs ensure families and children feel at home and part of a warm, supportive and inclusive community. 

Instructional Approach 

Jeffco believes in teaching the whole child, giving attention to all areas of development including social-emotional and content knowledge. Student interests and experiences guide decision making and curriculum. Teachers create a caring, equitable and inclusive community of learners where information is available through different materials and experiences. 

Children are naturally curious about their environment, and play is an essential component of programming. In an ever-evolving environment, children experience self-directed learning opportunities where they practice skills aligned with their needs and development. Play promotes a language-rich environment that fosters problem-solving skills, self-regulation, cognitive and social competencies and learning of content knowledge.
