The goal of every KidsTown Drop-In Child Care Center is to provide quality, licensed care to children, so they may have a safe and secure place to visit that's also fun, exciting, and entertaining. KidsTowns offers a flexible preschool schedule and curriculum, qualified staff tailors each day's lessons to those in attendance to create a more flexible preschool program. Here, children have the opportunity to learn new skills, play with different toys, participate in group games, create art projects, and interact socially with other children. Activities are scheduled throughout the day to encourage learning in new areas, while also providing social, physical, and cognitive development opportunities.
Another consistency is that each facility allows parents to drop off kids ages 1-13, whenever is most convenient to give parents an opportunity to select a weekly schedule that works best for their family. To further accommodate parents, some centers offer themed Saturday-evening sessions that keep children entertained at night, so adults may get away.
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.

ChiroXchange supports a nervous system of more than 250 nationwide locations, whose varying services and technologies all converge with the end of healing bodies with holistic, drug-free techniques. The chiropractors believe that many of the body’s ailments, from sore backs and headaches to fatigue, are caused by blockages in the nervous system. To reverse these blockages, they nudge spinal discs back into place with gentle, strategic pressure, aligning nerves with the vertebra to free the flow of information and cat photos to and from the brain. The chiropractors at each location emphasize communication with their patients. They field questions, explain the purpose of every adjustment, and work with patients to design programs around their unique wellness goals.
