Mile High Early Learning

Mile High Early Learning is the largest and oldest provider of subsidized quality early care and education in Denver. Our mission is to ensure that our most vulnerable children have an opportunity to succeed in school and in life. Using a Montessori inspired approach, we help the children we serve by fostering in them social competency, a habit of concentration, initiative and persistence, pride in the physical environment and a life-long joy of learning—all qualities which engender school success and responsible and engaged citizens.

Our five early learning centers across Denver can serve more than 500 children each day. Our two drop-in centers, in partnership with Denver Human Services and Denver Courts, provide a safe and healthy setting for their clients’ children. At our Northeast Learning Center, we have community education and outreach programs for Family, Friend and Neighbor care providers as well as parents. Programs such as Babies Ready for College, Neighborhoods for Learning and Play and Learn Groups—are all focused on supporting children’s growth and development by working with parents and caregivers.

Last year, we served over 640 diverse families and children in our centers from the Denver metro area and 150 in our community outreach programs with more than 8,500 visits at our drop-in locations.

We remain deeply committed to ensuring that all children have access to quality early care and education. I welcome you to join us to make a difference in children’s lives.
