We’re excited to have providers participate in Universal Preschool (UPK) Colorado. Providers will participate once they have registered and created a profile within the UPK Colorado application system.
We hope this helps providers always be at their desired capacity, more easily communicate with families, and represent their businesses to a wider audience.
Providers must be licensed to provide services for preschoolers and must sign a provider service agreement. Speak with your LCO to begin your registration process.
Log in using your email address associated with the licensing system. If you have issues, contact your Local Coordinating Organization (LCO).
