Young Tracks Executive Director

Young Tracks, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3, nonprofit organization, which was formed in 1990 to operate as Young at Heart Child Care Center in Steamboat Springs.

First Tracks was a “for profit” Toddler program and Preschool that opened in 1992. Both centers were struggling in different ways and in February of 1998, the centers merged as a means of pooling resources and to offer a single site for families with the intent of consistent quality care from infancy through preschool. This organization has been serving infants through preschool age children in Routt County for over 30 years.

Young Tracks, Inc. welcomes all children regardless of race, color, religion or national origin. Children with disabilities will be individually assessed and will be accepted depending on the capabilities of our program to accommodate their need.

Children on the Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCCAP) are welcome, we strive to serve at least 51% low- and moderate-income families.
