Eagle County Schools' Early Childhood Program is a blended center-based program that includes Head Start, Colorado Preschool, Early Childhood Special Education, and traditional preschool programming. Recognizing the importance of early childhood experiences on school success, Eagle County Schools continues to take an active role in fully integrating early childhood programs into the district.
The Early Childhood Program values small class sizes, low teacher-child ratios, individualized programs, and building collaborative partnerships with families. We help our children develop the skills they need to be ready to start their elementary education based on the Early Learning and Developmental Guidelines.
Our Early Childhood Program Goals:
- Better prepare children for school achievement by supporting their physical, cognitive, social and emotional growth as demonstrated on child assessments.
- Develop trusting and collaborative relationships with parents to support them as they nurture the development of their children.
- Provide families support and connections to resources in an environment that ensures a comprehensive, integrated array of services for families.
- Provide high quality responsive services for children and families through the development of highly trained, caring, and adequately compensated program staff.
