Aspen, Colo. – October 24, 2022 – Kids First, the City of Aspen’s early childhood resource center, increased its funding for childcare financial aid, as well as extended the application deadline. New and returning families may submit applications for increased childcare financial aid through November 8, 2022. 

Kids First Childcare Financial Aid is available to applicants with children ages five years and younger, have a child attending a participating licensed Pitkin County childcare program, work or live in the Aspen Urban Growth Boundary, qualify financially, and work during the hours the child receives the care. 

Kids First staff and the Financial Aid Committee determine financial aid eligibility based on a sliding scale associated with a family’s overall childcare costs. An automatic adjustment is made for returning financial aid recipients who apply and are approved for increased funding. New applicants who are approved receive funding beginning December 1, 2022. 

For more information about eligibility and the application process, visit, and/or contact Kids First at 1-970-920-5363 or
