Children and Families Served

In the 2016-17 year, Mile High Early Learning served 661 children at its seven early learning centers. 94% of families live at or below the Federal Poverty Level ($24,300 for a family of four).

A diverse mix of children: 2016 -2017
  • 52% Hispanic
  • 26% African American
  • 12% European American
  • 7% Multi-racial
  • 2% Asian/Pacific Islander
  • 1% Native American

60% of the families were single-parent households. In addition, Mile High Early Learning provides a full array of individual screenings for health, developmental, sensory and behavioral concerns so that needs can be identified and issues addressed early. Last year, 100% of students received early intervention learning screenings; and of the 14% of children identified with special needs, all received services through an Individualized Education Plan

Mile High Early Learning also operates two drop-in care centers, Denver Warm Welcome Court Child Care and Good Beginnings at Denver Human Services, in partnership with the City of Denver. Last year, the combined annual attendance at these two centers was 5,875 visits.
