Welcome to the Owl’s Nest for Early Birds and Late Owls

Before & After School Care at Aspen Ridge Preparatory School

Here is the phone number in case you need to reach us 720-242-6225 ext. 9

Hello families of Aspen Ridge!
My name is Kaitlyn Thornton, and I will be the on-site director of the Owls Nest for early birds and late owls.  You may recognize me from before and after care from the last few years. The Owl’s Nest will be run through Aspen Ridge this year instead of the Erie Community Center, and before and after care will also now be in the upper school’s cafeteria.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask!  We will also be releasing a parent handbook before the beginning of the year that has the answers to a lot of your potential questions.  I am looking forward to meeting all of you, and have a great rest of your summer!

Thank you all,
Kaitlyn Thornton,
