How does BECC help?

The Broomfield Early Childhood Council is proudly supporting state-wide efforts to improve the quality of child care for our young children. Through a federal grant, we distribute funding to enhance the quality of the child care environment; provide training and coaching on new rating system and one-on-one support to all licensed child care providers. Funding and coaching support is available to licensed child care facilities who meet the following criteria:

  • Achieved a level 2 or higher in Colorado Shines

  • Have an active or pending CCCAP fiscal agreement signed with the City and County of Broomfield, Health and Human Services, click here to contact them

  • Agree to maintain the Level 2 or higher rating

  • Commit to move Level 2 to a Level 3-5 rating within the next two years
