[ARCHIVED] Castle Rock’s Adventure Club Preschool earns high rating from State of Colorado

Castle Rock’s Adventure Club Preschool earns high rating from State of Colorado

Choosing the right preschool is not simple or easy. Colorado Shines works with preschools to ease parent’s minds as they select a program. The Town’s Adventure Club Preschool has earned a level three rating from the program for excellence in early learning.  

Colorado Shines is a free service offered through the Colorado Department of Human Services Office of Early Childhood, which rates Colorado’s early care and learning programs. The rating communicates to families that the Town’s preschool program provides a high-quality experience for children. When comparing preschool programs, having a Colorado Shines rating gives families the peace of mind that a program is safe and supports healthy development.

The program is designed to look at how early learning programs:

  • Support children’s health and safety
  • Ensure their early childhood professionals are well-trained and effective
  • Provide a supportive learning environment that teaches children new skills
  • Help parents become partners in their child’s learning
  • Demonstrate strong leadership and business practices

Preschools are able to receive a level one through five rating. Reaching levels three through five means the program has completed an intensive process to demonstrate quality care. Just 10 percent of licensed programs rated by Colorado Shines attain the highest possible rating tier.

“Going through this accreditation process demonstrates our dedication and commitment to our littlest residents and shows our high standards,” said Parks and Recreation Director Jeff Brauer.
