In the 2011-12 school year, there were 20,160 slots in the Colorado Preschool Program (CPP). The number of CPP slots is capped by the legislature and has remained flat for the past three school years.  CPP provides high-quality preschool free of charge and has been demonstrated to boost school readiness among vulnerable children.  To find data on the number of CPP slots in your county or school district, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
