About

The Children’s Center Philosophy

We believe that all children should have the opportunity to grow and learn to their fullest potential. We recognize each child as a unique individual with patterns of growth affecting their development.

The Center has a strict policy of non-discrimination toward students and staff.

We are members of both the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the Colorado Association for the Education of Young Children (CAEYC).

The Children’s Center is licensed by the State of Colorado and a member of the Colorado Child Care Association. We are inspected by the Health Department, Fire Department and State Licensing Department.

We are proud of our recent commendation letter from the Colorado Division of Child Care thanking us for our commitment to the health and safety of the children in our care!
