  • Colorado Shines

    Colorado Shines is a quality rating and improvement system (on a scaled of 1 to 5) used to assess, improve, and communicate the level of quality in early care and education programs. This system assigns a quality rating to licensed early care and education programs, similar to rating systems for other service-related industries like hotels and restaurants. Colorado Shines, Colorado’s quality rating and improvement system, is require for licensed childcare and preschool providers supporting children prior to entering kindergarten and helps early learning programs offer high-quality care and preschool. It supports and offers resources to preschools so they may support each child’s learning and development. Research shows this kind of assistance helps providers improve the quality of their programs, and when more young children are ready for school, we all benefit.
