Raising A Family in the Best Place in the World
Durango is, by many a family, regarded as the best place to raise a child. It's a small town, but it's got a lot to offer the little ones! Excellent programs for kids are available at The Smiley Building like dance classes, Music Together and piano lessons. A number of excellent pre-schools and Montessori schools are available for infants and toddlers such as The Children's House. And Durango has the best playground available right out your backdoor. Perhaps you're already at that stage, but what if you are just now considering having a family and raising them in Durango? Durango has great stuff available for you too.

Holistic Moms Network- The Durango Chapter of the Holistic Moms Network started up earlier this year. HMK is a non-profit organization committed to connecting parents who are interested in holistic health and green living. They welcome new parents, expecting parents, those interested in becoming parents and all of the other members of the village that it takes to raise a child to participate in meetings. They meet at Joy of Life Family Medicine/Amavine Midwifery on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6pm.
The Red Tent- Coming to Durango soon is The Red Tent, a healing center for women of all ages.

Last but not least, the newest and coolest place for wee ones in Durango is Baby Base Camp. Baby Base Camp was created as a landing spot for parents who are transitioning back into the workforce. They have a special room available for parents who are heading back to work, but have a hard time being too far away from their little babes. They offer flexible and affordable child-care solutions built around the needs of PARENTS during the first year of their babies life. They've remodeled an old house in Historic Downtown Durango into a pretty sweet crib. This cool little thing they have created is worthy of checking out, visit them online at babybasecamp.org for more information.
