As a program of OUR Center (Outreach United Resource Center, Inc), Aspen Center for Child Development has been providing compassionate care for children 6 weeks to 6 years old in a fun learning environment since 1989. With over 15 qualified teachers and substitutes it’s our passion to provide your family with childhood excellence. We provide child care, preschool, and school readiness programs that enhance the social, intellectual, physical, and emotional well-being for children and families from all income levels in and around the Longmont community.
We believe that our highly-rated staff, wrap-around programs, and unique and fun lessons are not only the right thing to do for our children and their families but they are an outward expression of the passion we have to be a leader in child development in the St. Vrain Valley. In addition to our qualifications and programs, we maintain a low child-to-teacher ratio, and 100% of our graduating preschoolers are rated “kindergarten ready.” One of the only early childhood education centers in Longmont offering STEAM-based education programs, the Aspen Center for Child Development focuses on gross and fine motor skills, language and literacy, sensory, art, music and social-emotional domains – all of which help each child develop his or her greatest potential.
MISSION – Provide care that enhances the social, intellectual, physical and emotional well-being of children and their families from all income levels in and around the Longmont community, and support those in need toward self-sufficiency.
HISTORY – The OUR Center was founded in 1986 to provide a centrally located, comprehensive service of basic needs to families in the St. Vrain Valley. The scope of the organization was expanded with the addition of OUR Child Care Center in 1989, which later changed its name to the Aspen Center for Child Development. Support for all programs come from the entire community including individuals, churches, service organizations, businesses, private foundations, the City of Longmont, and Boulder County.
