Children and Families Served
During the 2019-20 academic year, Mile High Early Learning served over 1,000 children and families. Approximately 92% of families live at or below the Federal Poverty Level ($26,200 for a family of four).
We served 557 infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at our early learning centers in the 2019-2020 academic year, with our children coming from diverse backgrounds:
- 47% Hispanic
- 31% African American
- 11% European American
- 9% Multi-racial
- 1% Asian/Pacific Islander
- 1% Native American
68% of families were single-parent households. In addition, Mile High Early Learning provides a full array of individual screenings for health, developmental, sensory and behavioral concerns so that needs can be identified and issues addressed early. Last year, 100% of students received early intervention learning screenings; and of the 56 children identified with special needs, all received services through an Individualized Education Plan or Individualized Family Service Plan.
Mile High Early Learning served 521 caregivers, parents, and children through Babies Ready for College and its suite of programs during the 2019-2020 academic year. Babies Ready for College participants are primarily female, frequently relatives such as grandmothers and aunts. Approximately 90% are Hispanic.
