The Early Learning Center of Ouray is happy to announce that we have received our Colorado Shines rating and we have earned a Level 4 (Level 5 is the highest)! When we started this process more than 2.5 years ago, we were at a Level 1. Our program quality has improved greatly over the course of the last few years, thanks to dedicated staff, administrative support, and our fantastic group of parents.
I want to thank all of you for supporting us in many ways, such as making schedule changes to accommodate the needs of our youngest students, attending CPP meetings and parent education nights, filling out family surveys, ensuring low staff turnover by providing adequate funding, cooking and serving excellent food, and coming to classroom and school wide events.
Now that we have received this rating, the process will repeat once every three years. In the meantime, we will continue to work together as a team to improve our program in order to ensure our little ones are ready for Kindergarten with a solid foundation of social-emotional as well as academic skills.
Thank you all for your support!
