Newly Renovated Child Care Classrooms in Central Boulder
For 40 years, YWCA Boulder County has provided high-quality, affordable child care in the heart of Boulder. Throughout the years, we’ve responded to evolving community needs, from offering the county’s only sliding scale, drop-in child care program, to adding more long-term care options, to providing more flexible schedules to accommodate a changing employment landscape.
Four decades ago, YWCA Boulder County recognized the need for flexible, affordable drop-in child care and created Children’s Alley. Our child care program expanded in 2020, prompting a new name: Persimmon Early Learning. Thanks to strong community support, we completed a $600,000 renovation and refresh, expanding capacity to five licensed classrooms, three updated Outdoor Learning Areas, one commercial kitchen and a smaller kitchen for nutrition activities. Our new indoor and outdoor classrooms complement our emphasis on health, wellness, and nutrition, providing room for more active play, exercise, nature exploration and gardening. Staying true to our founding values, today we offer high-quality, affordable drop-in, short-term and emergency child care, now with permanent care options.
