Years in business: 38
Location: Denver
CEO: Mike Yankovich (Watch an interview on ColoradoBiz TV.)

Company snapshot:
The Children's Museum of Denver creates a community where children, ages newborn through 8, and their grownups learn through play. The Children's Museum of Denver was established in 1973 by parents, educators and other professionals who wanted to create a hands-on cultural and educational institution for children and families.
Notable practices: The museum's mission is to create a community where children and their grownups learn through play. The Museum addresses critical issues in the community including the need for play-based learning and safe spaces for childhood development. Studies have repeatedly shown that creative and imaginative play is central to the healthy growth and development of a child. It has formed collaborative partnerships with other organizations like multiple school districts throughout the region, Colorado Ballet, Opera Colorado, National Western Stock Show and Denver Botanic Gardens.
Community involvement: The Children's Museum works with public school systems and other nonprofit organizations, and also receives significant financial support from foundations, corporations and individual donors in the Denver community and across the nation. "We see our collaborations as critical to our mission. By working with other community organizations, we often open our doors to groups that might not otherwise visit us, either because of time or money."
