Early Childhood Partners (ECP)
A group of professionals who specialize in the early years of child development when support has the biggest impact on lifelong success. Our goal is to increase quality in all early childhood environments with a focus on improving social and emotional skills in children, teachers, caregivers, and families. Highly qualified and experienced in the area of early childhood, the ECP team is able to bring the most current information on what is considered best practice for children birth to 8 years old.
Early Childhood Network (ECN)
The Early Childhood Network is a non-profit organization that promotes the availability of quality, affordable early childhood education, and provides access to childcare information and resources for Garfield, Pitkin and Eagle counties. Our purpose is to offer individual quality-improvement coaching and assessment to childcare center staff and in-home providers, and to provide families with free referrals to licensed childcare facilities while educating them on the importance of understanding quality childcare indicators.
