Early connections. Lifelong results.

Welcome to Early Connections Learning Centers! As the oldest nonprofit child care organization in Colorado, we have been delivering comprehensive, high-quality, affordable early childhood care and education to children from families of limited means in the Pikes Peak Region since 1897. We are proud to be a leader in the field and setting the standard for high quality early learning.

Experience and longevity ensure strong leadership and a depth of knowledge unequaled elsewhere. Our management team has a combined total of over 100 years with Early Connections. Diane Price, President and CEO, has been with the organization since 1989.

Our 125-year record of excellence in early care and education speaks for itself. Parents know they can count on Early Connections Learning Centers now and in the future.

Curriculum

A developmentally-appropriate approach to early education to support learning and development in all major domains—language, social-emotional, cognitive, physical, literacy, mathematics, science and technology, social studies and the arts.

Holistic Approach

A holistic, whole-child approach to learning and growth by ensuring the physical, personal, social and emotional well-being of each child is met. Our menus emphasize fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and minimal processed food. Daily outdoor activities and play.

Family Centric

We build strong partnerships with you from your first visit and enrollment, through your child’s early learning experiences to facilitate a smooth transition to school. Families are always welcome in the classroom.

One Size doesn't Fit all.

Children’s needs vary and so do family circumstances. That’s why Early Connections Learning Centers offers much more than a “one size fits all” setting for your child. Choose from a variety of locations in licensed centers and family child care homes and watch your child thrive.
