Our coaching and business services help child care providers at all levels — and in all settings — learn, reflect, and grow.
As early learning programs work to grow and sustain their program quality, coaching is a critical link to support continuous improvement.
Whether you are seeking coaching for your own professional development or to address challenging behavior in the classroom, we’re here to help.
Highly qualified coaches support early childhood professionals across a wide variety of topics:
- Social-emotional early development
- Positively addressing challenging behavior
- Support to navigate the Colorado Shines QRIS
- Playground and facility safety
- Child health and development
- Screening and assessment
- Management and administration
- And more!
THE COACH’S ROLE
“Coaching is a learning process based on a collaborative relationship. It is intentionally designed to promote growth in the key attitudes, skills, and knowledge needed to effectively implement best practices that support the development of young children and their families.”
– Colorado Coaching Consortium
