Your child's success starts right here.

Neuroscientific evidence proves that learning begins very early for a child. In fact, your child is born eager and wired to learn. Fulfilling that potential relies heavily on the environments he or she encounters and the relationships formed during those pivotal first five years. Recognizing this profound impact, Clayton Early Learning has created two rich learning environments staffed by nurturing professionals to help your child grow in linguistic, conceptual, social, emotional and physical skills.

At the Educare Denver School on the historic Clayton Campus and the Clayton Early Learning School in Far Northeast Denver, our research-based programs are expertly designed to ensure that your infant, toddler or preschooler is amply prepared for success in school and beyond.




Educare Denver at Clayton Early Learning - 3751 Martin Luther King Boulevard

Located in northeast Denver on the historic Clayton Campus, our Educare Denver School opened in 2007 and is a member of the national Educare Learning Network (  A major proving ground for all things early childhood, Clayton Early Learning employs three dynamic initiatives – practice, research and training – to discover the best ways to instruct and prepare young children for school.

With small class sizes, excellent student/teacher ratios and the expertise of its founding organization, our Educare School offers one of the state’s only research-based, outcome-focused preschool experiences. We are an inclusive, reflective and caring community where each child is recognized as a unique individual who has unique talents and unlimited potential. Our highly qualified ECE professionals understand how to develop the whole child using proven teaching practices and a nurturing approach.

Each year, our Educare School has provided exemplary care and education to over 400 children, most of whom are coping with poverty and related issues. In 2012, we opened our doors to private-pay families who desired a high-quality, diverse preschool experience for their children enriched by students from different backgrounds. 



Clayton Early Learning in Far Northeast Denver - 4800 Telluride Street

Ready to open in January 2013, the Clayton Early Learning School in Far Northeast is early education at its best. A state-of-the-art facility located in Green Valley Ranch, our newest school is informed by years of evidence-based research and proven teaching methods from our flagship school. Plus, the Clayton Early Learning School is proudly situated on DPS’ Evie Garrett Dennis Campus, a 35-acre campus offering innovative early childhood through high school education. 

Inside our school, you’ll find highly trained teachers who understand that these are the most important years in your child’s brain development. So, every activity – unstructured playtime, working on self-control, naptime, learning a new song – is intentionally designed to fuel the rapid growth of your young student. We address the whole child, and because our classes are small, we can pay close attention to how your child learns best. Best of all, we understand that neither loving nor teaching our children is enough by itself, but that feeling and thinking work in tandem to help our youngest students grow up confident, prepared and enthusiastic.

Young children can reach their potential in well-planned, high-quality programs, and that’s just what you’ll see at the Clayton Early Learning School. Please call us at 303-355-4411 to schedule a tour.
