The Early Learning Center

The ELC is a child enrichment program designed to create the love of learning with a partnership between parents and teachers.

Through discovery, growth, nurturing and creativity the children develop their highest potential. 

Located in the Yellow Brick School building, one block from Paepcke Park in downtown Aspen, the Early Learning Center boasts one of the largest childcare programs in the Roaring Fork Valley with 8 classrooms and nearly 100 families. We have Spanish speaking teachers in every classroom, as roughly 25% of our students speak English as a second language, and strive to provide an inclusive, multicultural classroom environment.

Operated year-round, ELC is open from 7:30am - 5:30pm, Monday through Friday.
