It all started with 6 children and our small family home in Englewood, Colorado.
We spent the fall of 2016 making repairs, renovating, and lovingly preparing our environment for the anticipated arrival of our students-to-be. That winter we enrolled our first children, and on February 6, 2017 our licensed family childcare home was officially open for business. We called it "Three Little Birds Early Learning".
We spent a full turning of the seasons dancing, singing, laughing, crying, exploring, creating, investigating, playing- all the while, learning. We always knew that we wanted to grow our school in a way that would enable us to serve more children and families, who, like us, understand the harm in pushing academics too early, and know that children need to play.
We wanted to create a place where childhood is honored and never rushed, a place where learning means getting your hands dirty, and a place that truly feels like a home away from home. We wanted to replicate the family childcare home environment on a larger scale- which is how Plum Hill Preschool came to be.
