Growing Together Campaign

Recently, the Larimer County Department of Human Services has made the decision to freeze the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) funds, creating significant challenges for low-income families who rely on this assistance to access quality childcare services. The CCAP program plays a vital role in supporting working families by providing financial assistance to cover childcare expenses. Currently, 80% of the families enrolled at El Nidito rely on financial assistance to cover the cost of childcare.  

In response, we have created the Growing Together Campaign to benefit El Nidito Scholarship Fund. This campaign encourages individuals and teams to become advocates for the cause to collect donations from their circles. The goal is to bridge the gap caused by the CCAP freeze in Larimer County, ensuring that children at El Nidito have access to uninterrupted, high-quality early education and care. We need your help in ensuring the families affected by the CCAP freeze continue to have access to affordable childcare.

Our Mission

Working alongside diverse families we provide high quality childcare and supportive services, with an emphasis on cultural attunement with the Latinx community. This work is done with an explicit vision of creating a community in which all families are safe, supported, and thriving.
