Teller County Early Childhood Education (ECE) is federally funded (Early Head Start/Head Start) preschool program for income eligible children ages 0 to 5. Children attending Teller County Early Head Start and Head Start programs will engage in foundational learning experiences that will prepare them for school. Our rich play based environments provide a safe, secure, social setting that support the development of all children. Health and developmental screenings along with parent teacher conferences provide opportunity for parents to collaborate with staff for the development of their child. Healthy meals and snacks are part of the education experience. Parents are the primary educators of their children. We support them as an integral part of our program. Parent involvement in their child’s education will start here to form a foundation for involvement throughout their child’s school years. Teller County ECE supports parents and families in achieving their own goals, parent-child relationships and engaging in community. The following application questions, including income information, help us to determine if your family qualifies for services from our program. Please answer honestly and to the best of your ability.
