CKLECC supports the state-wide efforts to improve quality of child care for our young children. Through provision of resources, training on the new Colorado Shines Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) and one-on-one support to local providers we aim to increase the quality of care in Cheyenne, Kiowa and Lincoln Counties.

CKLECC supports the importance of professional development as it leads to improvements in knowledge, skills and practices of early education professionals. The quality of a child’s experience depends on the knowledge and skill of the teachers and providers who work with them. The new Professional Development Information System, or PDIS, is a web based system supporting professional development for Colorado’s early childhood workforce. It tracks training and education providing high quality professional development opportunity. To get registered and start a portfolio in PDIS visit
