Mission Statement

To provide high quality, comprehensive early care and education for ALL children.

Description

Early Connections Learning Centers (formerly Child Nursery Centers), was founded in 1897 to care for young children from lower income and working families. We operate five full-day, year-round centers for infants, toddlers and preschoolers and three before/after school and full-day summer programs for school-age children. Fees at all centers are based on family income. The Early Learning Ventures Alliance of the Pikes Peak Region, a partnership with independently-licensed child care Affiliates, offers the choice of smaller, more intimate settings and meets the needs of parents with non-traditional work schedules. Early Connections also operates Court Care, a free drop-in facility for children whose families have court-related business.
