Warm Welcome Childcare Center
Jury duty is a hassle. But there is one perk to spending the day at Denver District or County Court: free child care. Run by Mile High Montessori Early Learning Centers, the Warm Welcome Childcare Center was opened in 1999 after judges noted that courtrooms are no place for children. The center's staff will watch any child ages six weeks to twelve years whose parent has business at the court, whether it be jury duty or a criminal proceeding, with a few exceptions: no sick children, no yelling at the staff and no dropping your kids off and then ditching court to go shopping. While it may be tempting, common sense says it's best not to break the rules while at a courthouse.
