Children’s House is one of Boulder’s longest running preschools, serving Boulder since 1970.  Our Director Elaine McCarthy, has been with the school since 1992, and was awarded 2010 Educator of the Year  by the Boulder County chapter of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Our Mission:

Children’s House believes all children — of every race, ability, native language, culture and socio-economic status — have the right to flourish in an inclusive preschool program.   The goal of our preschool is to provide a culturally sensitive, enriching early childhood environment with the activities, equipment and leadership to prepare children — socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically – for success in school and in the community.

The staff recognize that children are developing large and small muscle control, cognitive skills, social interaction, emotional awareness and control, and speech and language skills, and creativity. We have planned a program that will enable each child to proceed in their development in their own unique way.  In the past 6 years we have educated children speaking 26 different home languages including Marathi, Tulu,  Thai, Mandarin, Urdu, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Illago, French, Italian, Polish, Hebrew, and  Spanish.  Knowledge of English is not a prerequisite for attendance.

We serve children between the ages of 2 1/2 to 5. All children, regardless of background or abilities will be eligible for enrollment. Toilet training is not a requirement for access to the program.  We are mainly a part day program; our schedules range from 2 1/2 hours twice a week to 29 1/2 hours a week for older children; see the registration forms for specific schedules. Scholarships are available for qualifying families; ask for an application before registering to find out availability.
