For Parents - Site & Facilities


Commerce Children's Center sits in an ideal location on the campus of the US Department of Commerce Boulder Laboratories.
Set against the majestic Flatirons at the base of the Rocky Mountains, the center is tucked away from traffic and noise. Ours is a quiet location with visits from deer and rabbits. The Commerce Children's Center is a purpose-built facility with large classrooms, natural light, and easy access to play yards and child-sized bathrooms. 

Being located on a government secured site requires that all visitors must go through security protocol.  For this reason and so we can assure our availability we ask first time visitors who want to tour the center to call us in advance at 303-497-5063.  Be sure to bring a photo I.D. with you.
