Younger. Healthier. Happier.

Culture of Wellness in Preschools is a comprehensive, multi-level early childhood obesity prevention program that focuses not only on the children, but also on parents, teachers and making the preschool environments health-promoting settings.


Our Program’s Commitment

We will integrate social justice and equity principles into our program’s culture and curriculum to promote health and wellness best practices which highlight and honor the histories and cultures of the communities we serve. We will be driven by goals that are clearly outlined, tracked, measured, and that have accountability systems that explicitly promote social justice and equity.

Every problem has a solution.

Currently, 1 in 6 preschool-aged children (18%) are obese in the United States. We’re a comprehensive early childhood obesity program that aims to address this problem by increasing physical activity and healthy eating in low-income preschools across Colorado.

Take a deeper look.

Culture of Wellness in Preschools is comprised of five evidenced-based health-promoting components. Our program focuses not only on the preschool children, but also on their parents and teachers.
