For working families in Colorado, finding reliable and affordable child care is a daunting task. For limited income families, child care is an urgent need, enabling parents to secure and maintain employment and self-sufficiency. Infant care in El Paso County burdens single parents at a cost of up to 48.8% of their annual income. The need for ALL families, not just those with the financial means, to have access to high quality, consistent care has never been greater.
As the oldest 501(c)3 nonprofit child care organization in Colorado, Early Connections was founded in 1897 to serve children of limited income and working families in the Pikes Peak region. Our literacy-focused, developmentally appropriate program prepares children for success in school and allows parents to be productive at work, assured that their children are well cared for in a safe and nurturing environment.
