Birth-3 Years Old Programs

Our Toddler Program is for deaf and hard of hearing toddlers ages 0-3 years and their families. This is a good opportunity to learn more about what resources are available, meet other families and have fun. (Due to COVID - Toddler Program is suspended)

Our Literacy Program for Toddlers and Families is for Deaf and Hard of Hearing toddlers ages 18 months to 3 years old and their families. This program will be held at RMDS in person.

2021-2022 Toddler Program & Early Literacy Program Update

Dear Toddler Program and Early Literacy Program Families and/or Prospective Families,

First, let me thank you for your support and understanding as we, as a nation and community, responded to the unexpected invasion of COVID-19 and the continuous change in the COVID-19 guidelines. I am very proud of the way our Toddler Program and Early Literacy Program team, toddlers, and families handled the demands we were faced with to protect everyone as we continued to educate our toddlers and families during the most unusual of circumstances. Our first and foremost priority is the safety of our students, families, and staff at Rocky Mountain Deaf School (RMDS).

As for our monthly Toddler Program, we are postponing all of our events until further notice, pending on Jefferson County Public Health and Jeffco District’s restrictions and guidelines.

The in-person Early Literacy Program (ELP) will be held on Fridays from 9:00-11:30 a.m. The ELP program is provided bilingually through American Sign Language and Spoken English for Deaf and Hard of Hearing children ages 18 months to 3 years old and their families. We currently have a few openings as our previous students have graduated from the Early Literacy Program and moved into the preschool program. If you are interested in enrolling your child in the ELP program, please fill out the registration form. The link is provided below this letter. Enrollment will be on a first come and first serve basis, and the rest of the registrations we receive will be placed on a waiting list in case we do have any future openings.

As we continue the RMDS 2021-2022 school planning process and will keep you updated as the plans continue to evolve. We hope you can participate in our Early Literacy Program as we would love to have everyone, however, we are keeping our numbers small in order to provide a high-quality program. The Toddler Program and Early Literacy Program team would like to thank you for your continued support and positivity as we strive to do what is best for ALL of our students, families, and staff during these challenging times.

Thank You,

RMDS Toddler Program and Early Literacy Team
