We Are:

A quality, neighborhood, educational, child care center designed to provide warm, loving care, a stimulating educational curriculum, and a full range of services in support of all families. 

We Offer:

A professionally trained staff; the majority have at least 20 years experience, small group sizes, enrichment field trips in privately owned busses, age appropriate computer learning centers in all classrooms over 2 ½ years of age, curriculums which utilize the most current findings in educational research, and Denver’s most dynamic and unique outside age appropriate play areas.

When We Ask The Children:

They tell us they love incubating the baby chicks every spring, weekly music and Spanish specials, kindergarten in a real DC airplane, special summer camp activities, enrichment field trips in our school busses, and exploring in our award winning outdoor play grounds…all 8 of them.

Programs By Age:

Our child care programs engage children in hands-on experiences rather than scripted curriculum. Learning centers give children an opportunity to make choices, come up with ideas, and be creative. As play unfolds, our staff observe, listen, and reflect. They ask questions and talk to the children about what they are doing. Then they plan new and challenging classroom activities taking into consideration the individual needs of each child. By employing these scaffolding techniques, children find learning is fun while achieving heights they otherwise could not reach.

Toddlers (1yr+)

Working in partnership with parents, nurturing staff provide toddlers with individual child care in a loving, secure and engaging environment.

Iliff Blog:

An ounce of prevention goes a long way when caring for children at home or in child care.

Effective discipline begins when a child is born…not after problems pop up. In order to prevent problems, parents and teachers need to examine their own behavior first; then look at the environment, review how they schedule activities, and finally establish simple rules.

Children watch our behaviors and react to them the same way we do. If we yell, they yell. If we strike out, they hit and push. If we use […]
