Who We Are

Early Learning Ventures (ELV) is a Colorado-based not-for-profit organization dedicated to expanding access to quality, affordable child care. The organization focuses its efforts on improving the quality of early child care programs offered at the nation’s center- and home-based child care facilities—85 percent of which are small, independent businesses that lack the infrastructure and resources to invest in quality improvements.

ELV is currently serving more than 600 child care businesses, impacting 40,000+ children, and returning up to $8 for each dollar invested in Colorado.

What We Do

The ELV Business Model equips child care providers to improve quality, save time, and lower costs; resulting in better outcomes for all children.

Why We Do It

Education is the gateway to life outcomes, and the first five years of life are uniquely important if we want children to succeed in school, grow, and thrive.

We believe all children deserve access to high quality early care and education.

How We Do It

Through a comprehensive suite of services, ELV equips care providers with the tools and supports to save them time and money so they can focus on what they do best: serve children. For a progressive fee, providers gain access to a wealth of childcare resources, a robust web-based record keeping and compliance management system, and a full back office financial service solution.
