New Explorers Learning Center


TEENS, Inc is pleased to be a part of New Explorers Learning Center! Our preschool opened its doors in the summer of 2019, combining the experience and wisdom of previous area preschool programs. NELC is off to a great start and wants to direct interested persons to the appropriate resources.

For parents/guardians who are seeking to enroll their children, take a tour of the preschool or have other preschool-related questions, please call/email the co-directors, Karen Campbell and Lisa McCoy at, or 303-258-0390.  Once you have completed the tour and had your questions answered, they will begin the process by sending you an online enrollment application.  

New Explorers Learning Center (NELC) is using the Early Learning Ventures system to check children in/out each day.  Once you begin the New Explorers application process, you will be required to set up an account by visiting: The parent portal is a very useful tool for parents to pay their tuition invoices, change emergency contact information, and more.  NELC staff send emails to families through this website, so please make sure you check your email regularly.   
For parents/guardians who want to begin the Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) application in Boulder County, please visit:   You will find the necessary eligibility criteria, required forms, and more to begin the process.  If you are a Gilpin County resident, please email the CCAP Coordinator David Josselyn,
