Every student shapes a successful future.


The mission of the Aurora Public Schools Early Childhood Education department is to ensure that all preschool students will transition into kindergarten with the experiences and skills necessary to reach high levels of learning throughout their academic career.  The ECE department will provide support to the APS

APS 2020 Mission:  “In partnership with our community, we accelerate learning for all students to develop the knowledge, skills and character necessary to shape successful futures.”

The opportunities for early learning provide a strong foundation that will help to ensure academic success.

The Early Childhood Education department strives to involve the family by emphasizing the important role they play in their child’s education and support families in their role as nurturers and teachers.

The Early Childhood Education department remains involved in the School Readiness Project.  The School Readiness Project utilizes the Qualistar Rating System to ensure that all preschools and child care centers are of the highest quality.
