Colorado Shines is a quality rating and improvement system for all of Colorado’s licensed early learning programs for ages birth through preschool. It encourages and supports programs to improve their quality and to connect with families looking for quality care for their children. By participating in Colorado Shines, programs demonstrate their commitment to quality and continual improvement. Quality early learning programs help children start early and start strong. Early learning programs are rated through Colorado Shines on a scale of 1 to 5. The scale is based on points in five categories (workforce qualifications, family partnerships, administration, learning environment, and child health)

All of these characteristics indicate a program’s level of quality and ensure parents’ confidence in the program. To learn more about the program, visit www.coloradoshines.com
