Early Childhood Council
First Impressions serves as the hub for all early childhood resources. In strengthening and streamlining all early childhood services, families with young children are connected to the resources they need to ensure all children are valued, healthy, and thriving.
First Impressions of Routt County works to ensure that young children will be provided adequate resources and quality programs to promote healthy development and school readiness.
The First Impressions Council strengthens the community’s collaborative web of resources where children and families experience dignity and a sense of belonging.
Routt County’s Early Childhood Council and the program, First Impressions of Routt County, were formed in March 1997 after extensive community forums and needs assessments.
In an attempt to best organize all the resources throughout this website, we have listed three main categories to get you started. Please visit each page for additional references and information.
