The CVA Way

We're Different

Nestled in beautiful downtown Frederick, Colorado, Carbon Valley Academy Preschool impresses with a 15:2 student-teacher ratio, which ensures that our caring and experienced teachers observe each child's interests and build upon them for a truly unique learning experience.

Students flow freely between our outdoor play area and our cozy (but focused) indoor classrooms. They laugh, smile and learn through lessons of language, literacy, math, science, art, music, work habits, social skills, and character traits.

Our CORE Knowledge curriculum helps your Preschooler to build new knowledge and skills based on what they have already learned. Our teachers offer experiences that most closely match a student's present level, while providing necessary stepping stones to advance to higher levels of understanding and competence.

We are a fun school! Every child can be the leader, every child can have a turn, every child can contribute to the discussion and ask questions. Every child can shine! Our goal is to instill a genuine joy of learning with a positive self awareness. Oh, and we have some serious F-U-N!

Our Philosophy

The purpose of our program is to provide a high quality early learning childhood experience that prepares students for Kindergarten.

Did I mention CVA offers FREE, full-day Kindergarten?

We believe that each child is unique and should be provided with a safe, loving, and age appropriate environment in which to learn and grow.

We establish high expectations for all our students, recognizing that the rates and approaches to learning vary among individuals.

Each child's family is an important part of that child's life and integral part of the preschool program.
