5280 Early Childhod Education Center's staff

I'm Angela, owner and director of 5280 ECEC.  I have been working in the field of early childhood education since 2009.  My strong feelings that childcare could and should be better prompted me to open this center and I strive to provide the best environment possible for the families and staff that are part of this community.  Before moving to Colorado, I earned my bachelor's of science in horticulture form Auburn University and spent time in the rain forest of Costa Rica doing research work with Boston University.  Much of my weekend time is spent painting, gardening and working on ways to improve the school.  I thoroughly enjoy our school and the families and staff we get to work with everyday.

My husband, Jason, and I have have two children, Cater is 10 and Emerson is 7.  We try to spend as much time outdoors as we can and we're always looking for fun ways to spend time together as a family.


Tracy Cordova is the natural foods chef at 5280 Early Childhood Education Center- Golden location.  Tracy attended the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Colorado and received an Associates of Applied Science degree in Baking and Pastery in 2011.  Although baking is a passion of hers she loves every aspect of cooking, wheter it be sweet or savory.  Tracy loves cooking from scratch with the freshest ingredients, and she thrives on being creative in the kitchen.  At 5280 Early Childhood Education Center she has combined her love of children and cooking and adamantly believes that children need to be fed quality healthy foods to grow, learn and thrive.  Tracy loves the outdoors, traveling, snowboarding, swimming, hiking, cooking and spending as much time as possible with her family, friends and her dog, Bo.
