In February 2015, Early Learning Ventures (ELV), a Denver-based not-for-profit organization, was awarded a federal Early Head Start-Child Care (EHS-CC) Partnership grant. Since the award, ELV has used $2.9 million in annual Head Start funding combined with Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) subsidy funding to improve the quality of child care for families living in poverty. Each year of the grant, ELV has provided EHS services to 240 children younger than 3 by partnering with 32 child care providers in four Colorado counties-- Arapahoe, Mesa, Garfield, and Pueblo. ELV used its innovative shared services model--which combines business development, innovative uses of technology, coaching, professional development and other supports--to help child care providers meet Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS). This report evaluates the ELV's EHS-CC Partnership model across several program, classroom, and family measures. (author abstract)
