General School Mission

"Children's Choice Core Values
We are committed to improving and impacting the lives of Children's Choice families.

We are here to encourage and promote a positive attitude with a positive direction.

We believe in encouraging the children, families, and employees with a passionate vision.

Core Knowledge Curriculum
“The Core Knowledge Sequence is a detailed outline of specific content to be taught in kindergarten through eighth grade in the areas of language arts, history (American and world), geography, music, visual arts, mathematics, and science. Core Knowledge responds to the idea that elementary and middle schools need a solid, specific, shared core curriculum in order to help children establish strong foundations of knowledge, grade by grade.

The top ranked schools in Colorado are using Core Knowledge as it's foundation for student success. Children's Choice is one of the first childcare centers in Colorado to apply the Core Knowledge curriculum to the pre-school level. Because Children's Choice is an Art based school we also implement the Core Knowledge Art and Music programs.
