Wild Plum Center, formerly Longmont Children's Council, was established in 1965 as the St. Vrain Valley Child Development Council. For over 45 years, Wild Plum Center has been a leader in providing early childhood education and developmental services in the Longmont community. Since our grassroots beginning, Wild Plum Center has been offering comprehensive preschool programming to low-income 3- and 4- year-olds, including implementing Head Start.
In 2010, Wild Plum Center was designated as the Early Head Start provider for the area and now offers a complete continuum of services for the critical developmental window from prenatal through five. Wild Plum Center works diligently to continue to expand our services to address the growing and unmet early educational needs of Longmont's low-income population.
