Inspiration is a micro-classroom environment for Kindergarten, Homeschool, and Remote Elementary students. Our teachers are educated in early childhood development and licensed childcare providers. We are an exploratory school with a family atmosphere and a personal touch.
Inspiration includes 2000 sq feet of indoor space separated into 5 different learning areas. The outdoor space includes an additional classroom great for art projects, board games, and messy experiments. In addition, the outdoor play area is a fun nature-inspired space allowing students to explore and engage with their peers. This provides plenty of room, ventilation, and resources to safely work, explore, play, and learn. Inspiration limits the number of students so that we can prioritize a degree of normalcy while maintaining a safe environment. Our micro-classroom environment also allows for individual attention not available in other settings.
At Inspiration, our focus is on nature and the arts, social skills, kinesthetic awareness, and academics through active and imaginative play. Our program is a developmentally appropriate program that nurtures skill progression for the whole child: physical, behavioral, linguistic, social, emotional, and cognitive. We approach learning as a unique opportunity to acquire traditional skills and learn kindness driven social skills.
Our curriculum and daily schedule are thoughtfully planned and structured with elements of free exploration, directionally guided activities with spontaneity included.
The creativity and imagination within your child will be expressed in the creation of masterpieces. Imagination, exploration of various media and collaboration with peers all combine to make the art area a classroom favorite.
Free exploration of topics and activities provides both time and space for students to select areas of personal interest to further gain knowledge and skills. This may be done as an individual activity or with a small group of friends.
Students are provided with time to browse and select books of particular interest from our collection, share reading time with other students and manage online library reservations from Jeffco Public Library.
Music and Movement
We encourage the exploration of sound rhythms and the movement of the body throughout daily music and movement times. Students work on kinetics and sound provides inspiration to learn about different styles of music and dance.
Outdoor play is a priority and all children will have an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors, weather not prohibiting. This is a necessary component of the development of gross motor skills, aerobic exercise, and instilling a love of nature in each child. Treks to Aviation park are frequent.
Stretching the body, mastering breathing exercises, developing calming skills and the continued message of prioritizing physical and mental health provides our students with a foundation that promotes wellness on a myriad of levels to last a lifetime.
Our philosophy is to provide a loving, happy, educational, and secure environment for children. We strive to instill in each child a love of learning, a positive self-image, and a sense of creativity.

“Working in the field prompted my dreaming about the type of program I would like to implement if given the opportunity. Many years later I give to you – Inspiration Preschool! I am so proud of the philosophy, educational model, and experiences that make our school the place of inspiration that we have here. I welcome each one of you to our school.
