New director for UCAR Child Care Center
Cortney Fillion, who’s been part of the UCAR Child
Care Center since it opened in 2004, became director in December.
“I feel very connected and dedicated to the school,” Cortney
says. “I am so excited to have the opportunity to work
more closely with the families and
Cortney replaces Mia Strugar-Fritsch, who has accepted a
position as regional director for CCLC, the center’s
California-based operator. (Its official name, with unconventional
punctuation, is Childrens’ Creative Learning Centers.)
CCLC has seven child care centers in Mia’s region:
two in Colorado (including UCAR), one in Utah, and four in
Oregon. Mia, who’s staying in Boulder, will maintain
a strong connection with the UCAR center.
“While I’ll still be working closely with the
center, I won’t be here as much, which is going to
take some getting used to—I think I’ll have separation
anxiety for a while,” she says. “We really have
created a great school.”
The center currently has 75 children enrolled.
