My School Preschool was founded in 1971. We are one of few dedicated preschools in the South Denver-Metro area. Conveniently located off Yosemite and Belleview, we serve the communities of Greenwood Village, Cherry Hills Village, Englewood, Littleton, and Centennial. We also have families from Aurora, Parker, and Castle Pines.
We pride ourselves on our small teacher to student ratio, spacious and sunlit classrooms, and incredible teaching staff.

The philosophy at My School Preschool is that children learn best by doing. Our focus is on experience-based learning. We understand that preschoolers develop and learn best through their interactions with caring adults, through active hands-on play & learning, by connecting new ideas & skills to what they already know & can do, by exploring & making sense of their world, and through teacher-guided learning.
At My School Preschool we engage in developmentally appropriate practices to support the whole child in all areas of development – physical, social & emotional, language, and thinking (cognitive) skills.
The focus at My School Preschool is experience-based learning. Examples of how the learning is supported include: daily intentional experiences in the classroom, gym, art room and playground, monthly in-house field trips from museums, story tellers, dancers, musicians and more, and optional after-school Enrichment such as soccer, Spanish, reading or ballet.
Through the above activities, the following outcomes are guided: children begin to act, think and speak independently and implement problem-solving techniques in their work and play,
children learn to work and play in a cooperative manner and to respect the feelings, possessions, ideas and work of others, and children experience and explore the process of an activity rather than focusing on the final product.
My School Preschool in Greenwood Village is committed to the social, emotional and physical well-being of the children and their families. Supporting the child’s social & emotional development is an ongoing partnership between teachers and families. The teachers employ positive guidance techniques such as: assisting children to solve interpersonal challenges via peaceful negotiation, redirecting a child to appropriate activities that match the child’s energy level and interest, identifying causes, patterns & triggers of behaviors, and communicating and working with parents to better understand and guide behaviors.
