MHM employs the Montessori approach to foster social competency, concentration, and persistence in children ages 6 weeks–5 years, most of whom live at or below the federal poverty level. The organization aims to create a children’s lending library for its learning centers to increase access to linguistically and developmentally appropriate books. The lending library would allow families a greater variety of books to read with their children, and provide literacy calendars to track the amount of time children spend reading.
When you're facing a collection of more than 15,000 films, no one can blame you for needing a little help choosing one. That's where Video One's clerks come in. The movie buffs assist customers in finding exactly what they're looking for, guiding them through the store's recent releases or perhaps even steering them toward the staff recommendations. Whatever movie customers settle on, the DVD should play well; the store treats each disc in a special DVD-polishing station to ensure it plays without interruption.
Patrons can also rent video games and consoles, and they can buy, sell, and trade DVDs. If need be, clerks can even place special orders for rare movies customers wish to own but don't have the budget to remake in their basements.
Agates, amethysts, and luminous glass beads come alive in the settings that The Colorado Bead Company’s jewelry instructors help students design— elegant yet whimsical loops of wire, antique-looking chains, earring hoops that recall delicate dreamcatchers. Classes bring out the jewelry artist in kids, adults, and even first-time crafters who get to experience the thrill of walking out clad in the necklaces they've just designed. The shop glistens with strands and packets of such exotic baubles as freshwater pearls, hypoallergenic beads, and Swarovski crystal beads, ready to be incorporated into a new project or used to make a pair of maracas sound classier. Shoppers browse in a bright, open space lined with huge windows, hardwood floors, and airy flower prints.
Warren Village’s Greta Horwitz Learning Center educates children ages 6 weeks to 10 years old with a curriculum designed specifically for underserved students. In addition to cognitive, language, social exercises, the learning center conducts regular cultural and recreational field trips in the Denver area to enrich student’s education. Each classroom of approximately 14 preschool children attends at least two trips each year to city venues such as the zoo, art museums, the symphony and theater, and the children’s museum. Field trips provide students with informative lessons in the arts and sciences and an opportunity for a new experience, and also build their sense of community with both their peers and their city.
It feels nice coming home to a clean house—especially when someone else has done the cleaning. The bonded and insured team from Oscar's Premium Clean gets homes sparkling again with techniques honed during years of cleaning experience. They get all surfaces gleaming, take out the trash, and even do laundry—whatever the customer desires. And they even bring their own cleaning tools and supplies, so their clients don't have to figure out how to rig a mop using a hammer and washcloths.
