About Us

Thank you for you interest in Summit County’s award-winning Lake Dillon Preschool and Early Learning Center. Your child and your family are members of a non-profit, parent cooperative organization that serves Summit County locals and visitors. Parental involvement is essential to the survival and success of our center. In order for Lake Dillon Preschool to function, we need everyone to make a difference by being involved. Together, we can offer your child the best early childhood education.

It is the mission of our nonprofit family co-op to provide high quality early childhood education in a safe, nurturing, creative and earth-friendly environment, while focusing on the emotional, intellectual, social and physical development of children in our community.

We invite your child into a welcoming, happy, safe, sensory-rich and active environment where s/he can learn and grow. Teachers facilitate learning by exposing children to a variety of experiences. Our long-term goal is to be instrumental in your child’s life as they learn self-awareness and develop confidence with their own independence. Together, with parents, we will work as a team, and always keep the children’s best interest as our highest priority.

“Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.” ~ William Butler Yeats
