Mountain Tots Capital Campaign

In honor of Mountain Tots 50th Anniversary, we are building a brand new facility!

Mountain Tots Preschool has been proudly serving Eagle’s youngest residents since 1974. Hundreds of students have come through our doors to learn, grow and play. Each year our community grows and we are honored to serve as a high quality learning environment and community hub for families.


The Mountain Tots Board is thrilled to announce that in 2024, Mountain Tots will have a permanent home at 432 W. 5th Street, just a few blocks away from where we are now. 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. This location allows Mountain Tots to build a brand new building to best fit educational needs of preschoolers and toddlers. In this much larger facility, we will be able to expand care to younger children and serve more families. 


This is a huge endeavor to take on. The current estimate of the finished project is $2.5 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. 


We have partnered with a company that specializes in prefabricated buildings so expedite the process versus building a stick built building. Below is a basic rendering of the property with the building included. We will be going from 2 classrooms with a total capacity of 30 kids per day to 6 classrooms offering more preschool spots and adding 20 spots for toddlers!
