Mission

Our mission is to establish the framework for the delivery of sustainable, high quality, licensed childcare for every Estes Valley child 6 weeks to Pre-K that is affordable irrespective of their individual family’s financial status.  This committee will be complete when a facility, program and staff are funded and in place to deliver this level of childcare within our community

 
 

Friends,

The Estes Park Economic Development Corporation Childcare Services Committee wants to better understand the current and future need for childcare and early childhood education (ECE) in the Estes Valley. The Estes Park EDC has contracted with BBC Research & Consulting (BBC) of Denver to survey families who live and/or work in the Estes Valley about their childcare preferences and needs..

If you are a resident and if you have one or more children under the age of 13, or if you are expecting a child in the next 12 months, please consider taking the survey. It takes 15-20 minutes and your opinions will help inform important decisions about childcare in the area. Click one of the links below.
