About Us

OUR School was founded in 1997, and we purchased our permanent facility in 2007.  OUR School is a private, licensed, non-profit, non-partisan, interracial, integrated program serving children aged 6 weeks to 6 years and their families.

A strong belief in children and families dominates the philosophy of OUR School.  OUR School is a developmentally oriented program which views its mission as providing the BEST early childhood educational program for children while they are away from their parents, while providing an equally important service to parents while they work.  OUR School is a supplement to, not a substitute for, each child’s family.  OUR goal is to provide a quality preschool experience for any child, including those with challenges, whether they be physical, emotional, or developmental.  We strive to provide quality care that is available, affordable, and accessible to all families living and working in the Roaring Fork Valley.

Ownership of OUR School is “ours”...children, parents and staff! 


OUR School is a Colorado Shines level 4.
