Introduction:

The Gingerbread House Early Learning Center is a private, non-profit, state licensed early learning center located at 318 Girault Avenue, on the campus of Adams State in Alamosa Colorado. Our telephone number is 719-587-7162. The center is open to all children, ages two years six months to the age of ten, regardless of race, religion, sex, or economic background. The Gingerbread House is dedicated to providing low cost, high quality child care and preschool services to all registered children.

The center is dedicated to the concept that learning is fun. The goal of the center is to instill good attitudes in children about learning, thereby helping them to move on to other educational opportunities with courage and excitement.

We offer learning using the Creative Curriculum which includes all the domains of learning. Lessons are developmentally appropriate for the ages of the children in the classroom. Literacy is the backbone of all our programs and teachers plan activities around the arts of reading and writing.

The Gingerbread House offers child care services from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. We offer full time toddler services for children 12 months to 36 months old. Full time and part time preschool services are offered for children 2-1/2 to 5 years old and part time after school services are offered for children 5 to 10 years old.
