    Mission
    To provide an optimal learning environment for the whole child.
     
    Vision
    In being successful, the Cottage maximizes the potential of our students to grow
    in their physical, social-emotional and cognitive domains. We partner with families to
    effectively share information and resources necessary to understand and fully support each child.
    The teaching staff will create a safe, caring environment in which students thrive. They achieve
    this by maintaining high levels of competency and commitment to our program.
    Importantly, we will be seen by our community-at-large as the best early
    childhood program in the State of Colorado.
     
    Philosophy
    The Cottage embraces a family-oriented perspective within which the development of the
    child as a whole is successfully pursued. We are welcoming, nurturing, responsive and
    accountable. Our approach is collaborative, adaptive and supportive. We prize and derive
    value from diversity and innovation. While what we do is important, how we do what
    we do defines the uniqueness of the Cottage experience.
