What makes us 'green'?

What doesn't make us green?! Tiny Footprints has been designed from the ground up as a 100% sustainable, holistic, planet-friendly, health-concious "Crunchy" childcare facility. We are one of only 2 Children's Environmental Health Council Certified "Eco-Healthy" childcare facilities in the East Metro, and we go through great lengths to maintain this distinction.

Here's just a few of the things we do to make sure your child, and the planet they inherit remain as healthy as possible:

What Makes us Great?

Individual Attention
Our 1 to 4 child ratio means that each child receives the individual attention they need every moment, of every day. We work with every family to ensure their environment is perfectly catered to your child's needs, and dedicate ourselves to keeping them happy and healthy.

Holistic Curriculum
Our research-based, customizable, holistic curriculum takes focuses on  engaging your child in a wide variety of activities designed to pique curiosity, encourage exploration and instill a passion for learning and the world around them.

Amazing Food
It is so difficult to find a facility that has your values at heart when it comes to what your child eats. We do. We make eating healthy, organic foods part of every day life. Your child will become an active participant in not only choosing healthy foods, but growing them too!

Playful Spirit
With everything we "have" to do every day, and all of the schedules and programs children are involved in, it's so important that we encourage our kids natural passions and have fun. You'll always see a smiling face at Tiny Footprints.

Dedication to what Matters
Your child's wellbeing, and their future world are what we are passionate about. Everything we do keeps those two things front and center. Whether its the foods we pick, the toys we buy, the trips we take, or the books we read, all of it is carefully catered to the values you hold most dear.


We realize cost is one of the most important factors in making a decision about where to send your child. Costs for daycare varies widely, based on many factors including your child's age, total care hours, special dietary needs, and more. All of these factors make it difficult to pinpoint a generic price per student, however, an average family pays approximately $265/wk for one full time child including all breakfasts, lunches and snacks.

Tiny Footprints is a high end daycare provider, with a 1300 Sq. Ft. dedicated facility, low student to teacher ratio (1 to 4, half the state mandate), highly trained and experienced staff, comprehensive early childhood curriculum and a sustainable, locally sourced, fresh and organic menu. Offering the best combination of an in-home and center based childcare facilities.

There are no additional recurring costs, breakfasts, lunches and snacks, cloth diapers, diaper services, etc are all included in the fee. There may be very occasional fees for special activities or field trips. Contact us below for an individualized plan.
