Our Story

Aspen Grove Community Preschool is a community-based cooperative, nonprofit preschool located in the beautiful mountains of Nederland, Colorado. Our environment, our literacy-based curriculum and experiential approach encourage children to explore, inquire and express themselves through language, movement, science, art, math, dramatic play, music and organic gardening.

We provide a healthy, nurturing, peaceful and respectful preschool environment in which we help guide our children each day. We view children as the active authors of their own development who are strongly influenced by the natural, dynamic forces within themselves. Each child is gifted with their own special characteristics and by acknowledging and enjoying these traits, each child is encouraged to use them (with our guidance), to their advantage. Through their experience at Aspen Grove Preschool, we hope to have an influence on the betterment of our society and our Earth.

Facility

Aspen Grove Preschool strives to be a home away from home for its children. Built within an former home, each room possesses its own charm and offers a warm, welcoming learning space.

The art room is filled with all sorts of materials to spark children’s creativity and is accessible during free time each day. There is also a fully operational kitchen that the children often use to cook and bake with their teachers during group.

The play space is home to a dramatic play area including a number of costumes and a special wooden closet to hang them, a library reading space with a continuously changing selection, age appropriate writing and math learning centers, a “cozy corner” where a child can spend some alone time when/if needed, and two computers with age appropriate learning software. There are also two bathrooms and a separate sleeping area for preschoolers for early afternoon nap time.

The families, staff and Board of the school continue to contribute their valuable time and energy to make our facility a second home for their children which makes Aspen Grove Preschool such a magical place.
