We are happy to invite children to Bright Start Learning Center on a drop-in basis (currently unavailable but will be available soon). Whether you and your family are visiting Leadville and want to do some skiing, have an appointment, or are a local resident who is in need of child care on occasion, reach out to us.

Drop-In Care: $50/day for children who are not regularly enrolled. See our FAQ tab for more information and the following link




Monthly tuition is due on the first of each month through cash, check, or online through the Brightwheel app. Scheduled days may not be traded for unscheduled days; if an extra day is needed, your bill will reflect the $50 drop-in charge on your child's monthly invoice. 


We are pleased to accept funds from the Colorado Child Care Assistance Program. For more information about CCCAP, please click here.
