Woodland Park School District Early Childhood Center (WPSDECC) located at Gateway Elementary and Summit Elementary.

Update for 22-23 school year: We are requiring all children to be potty trained before starting the 22-23 school year. We will set up accommodations for any child who has delays or disabilities that may hinder them from meeting this requirement. A meeting with the child’s teacher, the special education teacher, and the director will need to take place prior to the first day of school.


If you would like more information regarding the WPSDECC program or have specific questions, please reach out to Director Katie Icenhower at kicenhower@wpsdk12.org.
