Children and Families Served

In the 2018-19 academic year, Mile High Early Learning served 623 children at its early learning centers. 92% of families live at or below the Federal Poverty Level ($25,750 for a family of four).

A diverse mix of children: 2018-2019
  • 48% Hispanic
  • 30% African American
  • 12% European American
  • 8% Multi-racial
  • 1% Asian/Pacific Islander
  • 1% Native American

62% of families were single-parent households. In addition, Mile High Early Learning provides a full array of individual screenings for health, developmental, sensory and behavioral concerns so that needs can be identified and issues addressed early. Last year, 100% of students received early intervention learning screenings; and of the 45 children identified with special needs, all received services through an Individualized Education Plan or Individualized Family Service Plan.

Mile High Early Learning also operates two drop-in care centers, Denver Warm Welcome Court Child Care and Good Beginnings at Denver Human Services, in partnership with the City of Denver. The combined attendance at these two centers for the 2018-2019 academic year was 5,698 visits.
