Early Childhood Education philosophy is to embrace the whole child developmentally, socially and academically, with the support of the family and community to ensure children are ready for learning. Mapleton Early Childhood Center is the first Center dedicated to Early Childhood in the Boulder Valley School District. Located in the historical site on Mapleton Hill jointly renovated by the City of Boulder and BVSD, we, along with nineteen preschools located in elementary and K-8 schools throughout the district, serve the needs of children ages 3-5. At Mapleton, we strive to welcome children and families into the educational sysstem at all levels of development, meeting children where they are in their learning journey and moving them forward, using a variety of approaches and strategies to build a rich language, literacy and numeracy foundation for learning.
