In many ways, preschool creates the foundation for school success. The Denver Preschool Program (DPP) believes strongly that early childhood education and preschool should offer a welcoming environment for every child. It is while attending preschool that children learn to love learning; when we use suspensions and expulsions, we send the opposite message. Such exclusionary discipline tells young children that school is not a welcoming place, which can trigger long-term consequences.
