Affordable child care is just as essential for sustainability in a community as affordable housing. Lack of either makes it difficult for workers and young families to stay in town. Lack of both makes it even more difficult.
In 2013, the Town created its Child Care Advisory Committee. Thanks in part to the efforts of this Committee, there are now five non-profit child care centers available to residents and workers, up from just two in 2008. Based on a needs assessment done in 2016, the Town worked with a developer to reserve a site at the entrance to Lincoln Park in the Wellington neighborhood for an additional child care facility.

The Town of Breckenridge realizes supporting our child care programs is critical to ensuring high-quality care and supporting the local workforce – helping people to continue living and working in the community. The people are what makes Breckenridge special and we look forward to seeing what this next generation can achieve!
