DENVER CCAP COLLABORATIVE

Formerly called the Denver Child Care Task Force, the Denver Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) Collaborative was founded to provide regular opportunities for child care providers to discuss policy and funding issues that impact their programs.

The collaborative includes participants from Denver’s Early Childhood Council, child care programs large and small, community funders, and representatives from the Denver Human Services CCAP team. Contact us to learn more.

JOIN OUR PARTNER NETWORK

Denver’s Early Childhood Council provides a forum for members of Denver’s early childhood community to share important updates, coordinate and align around key priorities, and discuss issues that impact the field.

HOME VISITATION NETWORK

The Home Visitation Network meets regularly to provide Home Visitors from different programs an opportunity to network, share information and access additional resources.

The Home Visitation Network is open to any program/organization that has home visitors, regardless of curriculum provided. In Denver, there are three curriculums funded through MIECHV, including: Parents as Teachers (PAT), Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY), and Nurse-Family Partnership.

Head Start and Early Head Start also have a home visitor component but are not funded through MIECHV. Representatives of these programs attend the Home Visitation Network meetings regularly.
