Giving Your Child A Comfortable “Home” For The Summer

Summer Camp kids are divided into three distinct age groups. In their own separate spaces, the kids feel comfortable with each other, form strong friendships, and partake in age-appropriate activities in the following groups:

Offering Skilled Classes That Spark Your Child’s Passion

Children in older age groups (ages 8-13) enjoy rotating summer clubs where they can follow their passion and choose which activity interests them. Classes rotate each summer and may include dancing, music, cooking, acting/movie-making, woodworking, jewelry-making, Flea-Market Flip, sports, graffiti art, photography, sculpture, fashion design, and crafts.

A One-of-a-Kind, Extraordinarily Creative, Summer Theme

Classroom environments are totally transformed and correspond with the theme. Children are given challenges, games, and activities that propel the theme’s storyline to keep them engaged and learning. Past adventures include exploring:

Exciting Field Trips, Even On-Site!

Each week is packed with different, exciting field trips! Kids ages 1 to 3 hop on the 65-passenger bus with seat belts to head off for fun! Alternative field trips are on-site, and all trips are a chance for your child to learn and discover.

15 Amazing Playgrounds To Thrill And Delight Your Child

Spanning over an acre, our backyard includes a soccer field, a basketball court on the hard top, mini-water park, mud pit, a multi-level castle playground, and much more. Children can also enjoy the serenity of our Columbine Memorial Garden or paint a masterpiece on one of our outdoor easels.

Summer Is Fun, But It Should Also Be Safe

Our 8-foot tall privacy fences enclose our whole property, ensuring that the children are not visible from the street as they play. Security cameras monitor the property 24/7. Entry to the building is tightly controlled and requires ID codes for access. Summer safety is important! We guard against the hot summer months by providing sunscreen and our vast play spaces with large shade trees also include multiple misters to keep the kids cool as they engage in fun games and unique activities.

Teachers make summer safe, memorable, and fun!

Our summer camp leaders are trained, qualified professionals who work tirelessly to bring their kids an amazing and unique experience each year. On top of all the fun and games, these teachers strive to give your child a safe, comforting place of acceptance for the summer. It is rare to see the kids just able to be kids and not worry about the pressures this age can bring. They are valued and accepted for who they are and our amazing staff facilitates this.

Building Relationships With The Power Of Prayer and Devotions

Devotions and understanding of Jesus’ love for all of us are an integral part of our program and are interwoven into the story that accompanies the Summer Camp theme. Each day the children participate in group prayer time to listen, empathize, and discover the power of prayer in a safe and supportive setting.

Healthy And Delicious Meals That Your Kid Will Love

Our kitchen staff takes great care in planning a nutritious menu that follows the CACFP meal patterns set by the USDA. Healthy breakfast and snacks are prepared in house every day to ensure freshness. Lunches are catered by a professional chef, who aims to provide wholesome, delicious, kid-friendly meals.

Simply put, there is no comparison to what A Child’s Touch (ACT) provides for my two children. The love, support and dedication of the teachers and staff is unparalleled. The learning environment provides fun play, structured education and lots of hands on learning that keep my children stimulated all day! That’s why making the 45 minute drive each day to and from ACT, is worth every second! I can’t imagine my children thriving at any other center as much as they do at ACT. It was a true blessing when we entered ACT four years ago and I feel so privileged and honored for our family to be part of the ACT family!


A Child’s Touch is a phenomenal preschool and educational facility. Their dedicated staff and excellent teachers are committed, engaged and patient. Our children have excelled at ACT and love to go to school everyday. Jackson is reading above grade level as a first grader, and Gabbie and Emma sing a multitude of songs that give thanks to the Lord for all they have. Jackson describes ACT as “fun and encourages creativity.” Despite the daily drive on I-25 from Erie to Thornton, it is worth every minute of it, because our children reap the benefits. There are other facilities and day care centers closer to home, but none compare to ACT. We are blessed to entrust such fabulous people with the care of our children when we cannot be with them. We don’t believe our children would be as well cared for and enjoy their time away from us at any other facility. We highly recommend A Child’s Touch!

Words cannot express our gratitude for the loving care you have provided both of our children over the past 6 years. Choosing a school for our children to grow up in was a huge and scary decision, and we are so very happy that we obviously made the correct decision to come to A Child’s Touch. There has never been a day that we were not confident when we dropped off our girls in your care that they would come out with anything but positive experiences. The trust that we put in your school and the care and love that you put into our children's lives cannot be described in words. We can only say that everyone at A Child's Touch deserves more credit and thanks than we can express and that you truly have such an exceptional school and staff. Thank you so much for blessing our children with love, respect, guidance and wisdom and teaching them how to make good decisions and to share in the love of God. We are going to miss all of you!!

We've been taking our children there for just over 6 years now and am still amazed at all that they do for the kids. My son started in the toddler room and went there through kindergarten and my daughter started as an infant (3-months) and is still currently there in the pre-K classroom. We will have her go through kindergarten as their program is PHENOMENAL.  From the beginning, I was very impressed with the infant room as I loved the care that each and every woman provided for my daughter when she was a baby. It was always extremely clean and really liked how they put thought into installing in floor heating so the babies would never be cold. I never had a concern about the patience, care and experience by the teachers in the room. As the children get a bit older (1 and 2), I really liked the philosophy of the playtime (both inside and outside). I didn't realize how important it was to separate out the play areas so that the younger kiddos could still have their own' play area and not worry about getting trampled... and vice versa. Potty training... a challenging stage in life... both our kids were always treated with such patience through that stage which, attributed to their success. The education that the kids receive as well at each age is so carefully planned out and our children just thrived (and continue to thrive) in their learning environment.


I have twin boys that have attended the ACT program since they were in Pre-K. We had planned on going to public school for kindergarten, but after seeing the strides they were making compared to their peers, we decided to attend the Kindergarten offered by ACT, and I'm glad we did! They are now reading and writing at an impressive level, and the passion and devotion of the teachers are second to none. We also enjoy the activities and programs as do our boys and other family members. ACT has given us great memories and given our boys a real foothold on schooling and a head start to their journey ahead, and for this, I am very thankful!

We have been very pleased with the social and academic growth that our son has made while at A Child's Touch. He entered Kindergarten with reading and math skills and the teachers worked with him to quickly move him to books that were geared towards his reading level rather than have him go along with the class. He was also given a chance to improve his math skills once he completed the current lesson. They encouraged him to become social with his peers and come out of his shell with various fun and education projects. A Child's Touch is constantly planning lessons and activities to stimulate his intellect, his moral compass and his social skills. The lessons and activities also encourage a love of learning that is hard to find anywhere else. The all day structure makes working easier knowing that there is no transfer to another location for the afternoon and the care is excellent and educational.


I just want to say THANK YOU to you, your family, & the entire staff at “A Child’s Touch” for the excellent beginning you gave my granddaughter, Madison in Religion, Safety, Art, Reading, Spelling, Arithmetic, Science, Ocean Life, & the Dinosaurs. She loved going to school there & you kept a very safe environment for her to learn & play in. The Passion Play that you orchestrated with the children was, I know, a great deal of work for the teachers, however, it will be a very special remembrance for the children & for all of us who will remind our children from time to time, of what Jesus did for us.


My first impressions sold me on A Child's Touch. The staff alone is what sets ACT apart from other daycare centers and providers. I couldn't find any other center that has staff with the length of employment as do the employees at A Child's Touch. As well, ACT is a safe, secure environment with a solid, developmentally appropriate curriculum that is supported by their facilities. Within months of having my child at ACT, I have fallen in love and can proudly define for you why it is truly an exceptional daycare center. Again, the staff at ACT is what sets them apart from good daycare. The staff brings a wealth of experience, a deep knowledge of child development and history of serving children and the community. We have truly partnered through such milestones as baby food, bottle weaning, transitioning to a new room and other things as they come up. I am supported along the way as if by own sisters or mother. Not only is my child in great hands, so is my family.
