Early Care & Development
Success In Life starts with quality early childhood education.
Mile High United Way believes all children deserve a strong start in life. We are committed to improving Colorado’s childcare landscape by expanding access to quality early care and education, so our youngest learners enter school ready to thrive in kindergarten and beyond!

Early Childhood Education Center
Mile High United Way is adapting to meet one of our community’s greatest needs by converting a portion of our building into a best-in-class early childhood education center.
The center will provide nearly 60 high-quality child care slots for families with children ages 0-5, as well as a holistic ecosystem of support that empowers and uplifts children, parents and caregivers.
During our first Women United Village, more than 100 families received supplies to help care for their little ones, including diapers, strollers, car seats, and more.
On June 12, 2021 Mile High United Way was thrilled to celebrate the first-ever graduation ceremony for HIPPY students and their parents.
Molly Yost, Mile High United Way’s Director of Early Childhood Initiatives, shares how our United for Families initiative is moving the needle on school readiness in Metro Denver.
