Early Learning Ventures, an organization focused on increasing the quality of child care, announced today the addition of 26 new providers across the state of Colorado! Early Learning Ventures offers a unique, custom-built model designed specifically for the child care industry, and ensures fiscal stability and superior business operations – the foundation for delivering high quality early learning services.

 Denver, CO – 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 nations’ 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. Working with a network of partners and through an online, cost-effective business platform, Early Learning Ventures is supporting providers to improve the quality of care they offer to children and their families while strengthening their businesses, saving time and lowering costs.

“We welcome all of the new child care providers to ELV. We are honored to work with each of them to help them improve the quality of their services, while making their business stable and sustainable,” said Mia Pritts, ELV Implementation Manager.

We are pleased to announce the addition of the following child care providers to our network of Early Learning Ventures. These providers are improving the quality of their care, saving time and lowering costs, so they can focus on doing what they do best – caring for and educating children! Welcome aboard!
