Parent & Caregiver Support
Mile High Early Learning’s philosophy is that parents are their children’s first teachers. We work closely with families to help their children succeed.
Each Mile High Early Learning family is assigned a Family and Community Advocate (FCA) who works directly with parents/families to develop positive, goal-oriented relationships. FCAs help families set goals that focus on building positive parent-child relationships, engaging in their child’s education and transitions, advocating for their children’s needs, and building connections to the MHEL learning community.
To help parents and families achieve their goals, we continue to develop and provide programs designed specifically for our families. One popular program has been Positive Solutions for Families, which is offered in partnership with Mental Health Center of Denver. This program is a six-session series that helps families learn how to promote children’s social-emotional development and understand and address challenging behaviors. This parenting curriculum is part of Pyramid Plus, which focuses on children’s social/emotional development.
Our staff make home visits twice per year to learn more about children’s needs and engage parents in our program. Teacher-parent conferences, held twice per year, allow us to directly engage families in their children’s education.
For parents and caregivers who do not have children enrolled at our centers, we offer training and support for parents and Family, Friend, & Neighbor (FFN) caregivers through Babies Ready for College and its suite of programs – including Play and Learn Groups and Short & Sweet Book Clubs.
