Early Connections Learning Centers is the oldest non-profit child care organization in Colorado and is recognized statewide as a leader in the field of early childhood education.
In 1897, 14 visionary women founded the Colorado Springs Day Nursery Association, recognizing the need for child care for working women. One of the founders, Alice Bemis Taylor, donated money to build the Day Nursery to provide a permanent home for the Association. The building was dedicated “to all mothers and all children” in 1923. The Day Nursery, located on Rio Grande, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
Early Connections takes pride in continuing the legacy of their founding mothers in providing high quality, comprehensive early care and education for ALL children.
