ECE – Early Childhood Education Scholarship Fund

Early childhood is an important time for our youngest learners to develop socially, emotionally and academically. Jewish Early Childhood Education (ECE) centers build Jewish identity by creating Jewish experiences, traditions, values and community for young children and their families. In response to the economic downturn and in recognition that Jewish early childhood education is a priority for the community, a community scholarship fund for Jewish ECE was initiated with a grant from Rose Community Foundation. The Annual Scholarship Fund continues today with funds raised by JEWISHcolorado from generous donors.

Families interested in applying for financial aid may visit the FACTS website at factstuitionaid.com to apply online, or contact FACTS via phone at 1-866-315-9262 for assistance in completing the application.

Using the FACTS service will ensure that aid assessment is conducted fairly and equally among all applicants, while maintaining the strictest confidentiality. Applications for financial aid will not be accepted by JEWISHcolorado.

The scholarship fund assists Jewish families with the cost of an early childhood education, whether those families are currently enrolled in a Jewish early childhood education center or are new to the Jewish ECE community. There are ten Jewish ECE centers in the Greater Denver/Boulder metro area; you can find a complete list at MazelTot.org. All Jewish ECE centers provide scholarship funding to families, and this fund provides families with an additional source of scholarship support.

In order to be considered for a scholarship award from JEWISHcolorado’s Early Childhood Education Scholarship Fund, families seeking financial assistance should

  1. Complete the registration process at their chosen ECE center, and
  2. Apply for scholarship funding through FACTS (an independent grant and aid assessment service).
