WSD3 Preschool

We are excited about the programs we have to offer for children ages 3-5 within our sites in Widefield School District 3. Between our North Preschool, Webster Elementary, and Grand Mountain School sites, we house 17 WSD3 Preschool classrooms, and three CPCD classrooms. Each program has different things to offer the children of the Widefield Community. We have many different activities throughout the year for parents and children to participate in with each other.

Children who  four years of age by October 1 of the current school year are eligible to enroll in WSD3 preschool. Additionally, we serve children with identified special needs beginning on their third birthday.

Our Mission

Our preschool mission is to provide children with a safe and nurturing learning environment that will provide opportunities that stimulate and encourage growth of the whole child.  This includes their development in the areas of cognition, communication, social skills, motor, self-help and pre-academics.
