Welcome to Mountain Tots Preschool

Welcome to Mountain Tots Preschool, a quality learning program located in Eagle, CO. At Mountain Tots Preschool, we believe in the value and uniqueness of each child we serve. Our preschool experience is designed to provide a high quality early learning enrichment program that enhances educational, social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.

We are building and moving!

After nearly 40 years in our current location, the time has come to find a new home and expand to provide care for more children. Our new home will be at 432 W. Fifth Street, just a few blocks from our current location. This location allows us to build a brand new building to best fit the needs of the children. We will also be able to expand care to younger children. 


This is a huge endeavor to take on. The current estimate of the finished project is $2.8 million which includes the purchase of the land, the new building, an awesome playground and back yard area, landscaping, paving, foundations, new materials for the rooms, air conditioning, solar power, and much more. Please donate what you can to ensure Mountain Tots can continue to provide high quality early childhood education in Eagle.

"The main thing is that the groups should contain different ages, because it has great influence on the cultural development of the child. This is obtained by the relations of the children among themselves. You cannot imagine how well a young child learns from an older child; how patient the older child is with the difficulties of the younger."

—Maria Montessori 

Mixed-Age Classrooms

While Mountain Tots Preschool is not a Montessori School, research strongly supports the idea that mixed-age classrooms are better for children, developmentally and academically. Studies also show that in a mixed environment children will thrive socially. 


Here’s why:

  • Competition is removed

  • Gives children an opportunity to nurture one another

  • Increased social participation

  • The pace of learning is individualized

  • Children Develop a sense of family with their peers

  • Children are viewed as unique individuals

  • Self-esteem blossoms

Most of the day we all work together but we also spend time as small groups for the children to work on the skills appropriate for their age and skill level.
