Community Schools

St. Vrain’s Community Schools program provides a safe, structured and positive environment that extends school day learning and supports families in need of before- and after-school care. The program provides a balanced menu of educational, enrichment and recreational activities to promote student achievement and engagement. Our childcare programs are licensed through the Colorado Department of Human Services for children ages 5-12.
