To provide an optimal learning environment for the whole child.
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.
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.
