Curriculum

Additional information can be found at https://earlylearningco.org/.

Holidays
Some activities may have holiday themes. Please notify instructors of any holiday theme objections as early in the school year as possible. Missed classes are not refunded.

Potty Training
Our Colorado Child Care License does not permit staff to assist children in the bathroom or with diaper/Pull-Up changing. Because of this, children must be fully potty trained (underwear) or a parent/guardian must be available on-site at the recreation center and reachable by call/text at all times to tend to the child if needed. We encourage you to keep a change of clothes in your child’s backpack.

You will receive an email from ePACT within 24 hours of registration. ePACT is where we collect health information and emergency contact information. If you have used ePACT previously (with City of Westminster or another organization), you will be asked to verify or update any expired information.
