GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Parents who have children ready to enter preschool need to know about some important dates.

Mesa County Valley School District 51 is now accepting preschool applications for the 2022-2023 school year. It should be noted, D51 preschool is tuition-free.

To apply, parents will need to pick up an application and developmental screening paperwork. Children who are age 3 or 4-years-old on or before Aug. 31 are eligible to enroll in preschool.

“There is no timeline. It’s not based on first come, first serve. It’s based on eligibility and we look for children at a higher risk for academic failure within our application,” says D51 Early Childhood Education Program Administrator Kristie Donathan.
