The Colorado legislature authorized 20,160 slots in the Colorado Preschool Program (CPP) for the 2012-2013 school year. Between 2009-2010 and 2012-2013, the number of CPP slots remained flat. With these slots, CPP has the capacity to serve only 21 percent of all 4-year-olds in Colorado and 6 percent of 3-year-olds. To find data on the number of CPP slots allocated to your county or school district, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
