Early Care & Education
  - A Framework for Success
Curriculum and Assessment
  Our whole-child approach to education focuses on children’s social, emotional and
  cognitive growth and promotes a love of learning and school readiness. Age-
  appropriate assessments measure children’s development and progress.
    • 113 preschool children were assessed using the Work Sampling System.
    • Overall Proficiency in all domains increased from 13% in the fall to 65% in the spring.

   Children are served two wholesome meals and a snack daily that are prepared
   on-site. In 2009, 72% qualified for free or reduced-cost
   meals through the Child and Adult Care Food Program.
    • 160,908 Total Meals Served          • 52,646 Lunches
    • 45,896 Breakfasts                   • 62,366 Snacks

  Our health staff ensures the health, well-being and safety
  of CNC children. Our Get Well Center, located at the
  Day Nursery, serves mildly-ill children from all our locations.
    • 96 Get Well Center patients • 172 Medications
 Family Involvement
  Teachers conduct two home visits and two parent/teacher conferences annually.
  Each Center holds four Family Nights and several classroom celebrations every year.
    • 541 Home visits and conferences
    • 47% Average number of families attending Family Nights
    • 45% Average number of families attending classroom celebrations

 Professional Development
   To maintain high quality programs and meet accreditation standards, CNC requires and
   facilitates continuing education for staff. Individual professional development plans and
   on-going, on-site training helped 59 teachers, staff and center directors to achieve their
   educational goals.
     • 14 - BA/BS in ECE or related field              • 14 - AA in ECE or related field
     • 8 - Child Development Associate credential

 Family Child Care Home Providers
   A partnership with privately-licensed family child care home providers, the Home
   Network offers high quality care and education in smaller settings and meets the
   needs of parents with non-traditional work schedules. Nine providers were accredited
   or Qualistar rated.
    • 298 children served in 2009 – 53 Head Start; 23 Early Head Start
    • 134 Colorado Child Care Assistance Program children
    • 8 homes offered night and weekend care
    • 13 providers have college degrees or are pursuing higher education in ECE

   In 2010, the Home Network transitioned to the Early Learning Ventures Alliance at Child
   Nursery Centers, a shared services model for increasing capacity and assuring quality.
