Early Learning Ventures (ELV) is a Colorado-based not-for-profit organization dedicated to expanding access to quality, affordable child care. The ELV Business Model equips child care providers to improve quality, save time, and lower costs; resulting in better outcomes for all children.
Why We Do It
Education is the gateway to life outcomes, and the first five years of life are uniquely important if we want children to succeed in school, grow, and thrive.
We believe all children deserve access to high quality early care and education.
"ELV strategically invests dollars to ensure all children can access high-quality early care and be better prepared to succeed in school and life."
- Christine Benero, President and Chief Executive Officer, Mile High United Way, Denver, CO
"I wish I had this years ago because it is the one-stop shop for everything a director needs to run a successful center. It eliminates the stress of recreating documents that we all use and need for licensing, the state department, and health inspections."
- Kelley Rodriguez, Center Director at Global Village International
"The ELV Alliance easily saved our five-member staff 25-30 hours a week in paperwork. We spend more quality time with children, more face time with babies and more time engaging parents."
- Ty Johnson, Former Director of Baby Haven, Denver, CO
"I loved the ease of scanning the purchase order, not having to pay any shipping costs, and that it was delivered right to my door!"
