Welcome

Wild Plum Center is dedicated to empowering families and preparing children for the future. Working with low-income families, our primary mission is to prepare children for a lifetime of learning and self-sufficiency by providing a comprehensive, individualized approach to early learning and family wellness. We address any and all aspects of need within a child’s life, allowing for more fruitful educational and developmental experiences.

We are the designated Early Head Start (EHS) and Head Start (HS) provider for the Longmont community. As such, Wild Plum Center is able to provide a wide variety of services and programs that many other child-care providers and preschools do not offer. Our services include a Family Education (EHS) or a Program Specialist (HS) who is assigned to a family and offers individualized, in-home support. Each WPC child receives annual health and dental screenings, and families are offered a variety of programs and classes in parenting, health and nutrition, a men’s group, and monthly socializations during which children and families get together to have fun and to learn from one another.
