Evans Early Childhood Center

Evans Early Childhood is a Colorado State Licensed childcare center and preschool, serving children ages 6 weeks to 6 years.

Working with East CO amid COVID-19

No one goes to work unless childcare goes to work–and every business depends on someone who depends on child care. Our resiliency throughout COVID, and our adaptability to be able to thrive in the midst of a pandemic shows the value of our business as a driver of the economy. Evans Early Childhood highly values the ongoing support of East Colorado SBDC for consulting and support during this time, as well as technical assistance as we prepare to expand our center through SBA funding.

At that point most of my capital had been spent on rent and utilities during the 2.5 months we were forced to close.  Without that support we would have had to permanently close. Thankfully we were approved for both types of assistance

After seven years making the commute, I decided to start working in Windsor. In order to make that transition a reality, I knew I’d need help.
