Childcare is expensive and space is hard to find, so with the help of City of Aspen staff we put together two 1-page reports complete with data, charts and graphs! We care about the sustainability of our community, that includes environmental, but also workforce and social livability. Having good information always helps make good decisions; for individuals, agencies, and communities. There’s a lot more information than we could capture, so if something really interests you please call or email us; we love to talk about early childhood!
#1 Wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap.
#2 Avoid sharing food, utensils, cups and toothbrushes.
