Join Our School Family
Located in the Golden Triangle neighborhood in downtown Denver, Colonnade Children's Center is close to the Auraria Campus, the Performing Arts Center and many restaurants. Our center is a purpose-built facility with large, airy classrooms and easy access to outdoor play yards. We are open to federal employees, as well as, private clients who are not federal employees. We operate year-round, Monday through Friday.
We're so glad you found us, and we hope you are interested in knowing more about us and sharing your childcare needs.
We hope you'll join our School Family of parents, children, and staff!
INITIAL INQUIRY and PHONE MEETING
We invite you to complete the "Contact Us" form and our director will reach out to you. At a time convenient for you, a phone meeting will be an opportunity to tell us about your needs and what you value in an early childhood program. We encourage you to ask as many questions as you like! We'll provide you with specific information about our curriculum, tuition, and hours of operation. The next step is for us to meet in person.
Being located on a government-secured site requires that all visitors must go through a security protocol. For this reason, we must schedule your visit. Be sure to bring a photo I.D. with you.
We look forward to meeting your family, introducing you to our team, and showing you our programs in action!
ADMISSION and ENROLLMENT
When you decide Colonnade Children's Center is the right choice for your child's early care and education, we begin the enrollment process. We'll help you sort through the required paperwork and give you documents to be completed by your child's pediatrician or health practitioner. You'll receive our informative Parent Handbook outlining all policies and procedures.
On your child's first day of school, we begin our partnership! You become part of our School Family!
We know it is exciting and a little bit scary. The first few weeks may be challenging. You will have a direct line of communication with your child’s teacher through our ProCare Connect™ app on your phone. Your teacher will send you information throughout the day, and you may message your teacher with any questions.
Soon you'll settle into a routine, and we'll continue to share daily insights, and activity plans, hold parent-teacher conferences, offer opportunities for parent education and involvement, and foster our sense of community.
It is our sincere wish to work in partnership with you as your child learns, grows, and thrives!
