Early Childhood Council of Larimer County (ECCLC) is an independent nonprofit organization that rallies support, resources, and awareness to ensure every young child in our community has quality early childhood experiences so they thrive from day one.

Whether in Estes Park or Wellington, Red Feather Lakes or Berthoud, every young child benefits from diverse, committed caregivers and engaged professionals in their lives. We know when this happens, children grow up healthier, happier, and ready for success in school and in life.

Early Childhood Council of Larimer County has been striving to dismantle systemic inequities and make this a reality in our community for decades. We work tirelessly and strategically together with everyone important in a young child’s life, from parents to teachers, and from physicians to psychologists, to equitably modernize and prioritize early childhood experiences. We provide expert coaching and consultation, build leadership capacity, incubate innovative ideas, spearhead community collaboration, advocate for policies and funding, and design and pilot programs.

We only get one childhood. When every young child is cared for in an environment that invigorates their learning and supports their wellbeing, they are set up for a life of health and happiness, which elevates our entire community.
