"I have been very pleased with the Little Pups Preschool at Coyote Creek in Highlands Ranch. My schedule changes weekly and they are very accommodating with my schedule. My son can attend school full day or half day. The curriculum is very good and is preparing my son for Kindergarten. He is challenged but is very excited about learning. The teachers are very skilled and attentive to all of the children. I couldn't be happier with my decision to have my son attend the Little Pups Program at Coyote Creek." - Laura C.

"We have been thrilled with Little Pups Pre-K program at CCE. It is creative, progressive and helps keep our kids at the same school. What I love most about it is that the kids are modeled after the kindergarten and school age programs and move about CCE as the older kids do, having access to the Specials classes (Technology, Music, Art, P.E. and Library)." - Anissa S.
