Jamaica CDC has earned a Level 3 Rating!

Colorado ShinesColorado Shines Rating

Colorado Shines is a quality rating and improvement system for Colorado’s licensed early care and learning programs. Using proven methods, it measures quality based on how an early learning program supports its children, families and professionals. Once ranked, it helps programs improve their quality rating/level and connect with families who are looking for quality child care.

To determine the level of quality of Colorado's early learning programs, Colorado Shines evaluates how each organization works to:

  • support children's health and safety
  • ensure their early childhood professionals are well-trained and effective
  • provide a supportive learning environment that teaches children new skills
  • help parents become partners in their child's learning
  • demonstrate strong leadership and business practices

Once a rating has been established, Colorado Shines gives participating early learning programs the tools and support needed to consistently improve their quality. These resources include helping programs develop and implement a quality improvement plan and offering trainings and other opportunities for professional development.
