The mission of the Early Learning Center of Ouray is to promote and support positive development in the domains of academic, social-emotional, and physical growth thru the responsive relationships, high quality environments, intentional teaching, and community involvement which results in an exceptional early learning experience. We provide a full or half day preschoolprogram for 3,4, and 5 year old students. Our highly qualified teachers implement a research based curriculum and a balanced schedule built specifically for young learners. The Early learning center is tuition-based and we serve a limited number of students. The application process begins each spring for admission in the fall.
