Free or Reduced Childcare/Preschool

Mountaintop Childcare currently works with two programs to give our parents a chance at free or reduced childcare.

Those programs are EVICS (Estes Valley Investment in Childhood Success) and CCAP (Colorado Preschool Program).

We are also going to be introducing an additional childcare scholarship fund in the Fall of 2023 called the Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program (UPK). This can provide free full or part-time childcare to families in the Estes Valley.

 For those interested, we have more information below as well as a link to pre-enroll now.


EVICS, Estes Valley Investment in Childhood Success, is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening and supporting families and children in the Estes Valley.

The EVICS Childcare Scholarship program provides temporary childcare and preschool tuition assistance to Estes Park families who demonstrate financial need and for whom other funding sources are not available.

Applicants are first reviewed to see if they may qualify for the Colorado Childcare Assistance Program (CCAP). If they do not qualify for CCAP, EVICS will then consider applications for scholarships.

Qualifying families must live and/or work in the Park R-3 School District.
