1 OTERO JUNIOR COLLEGE CHILD DEVELOPMENT SERVICES Providing the opportunity for a positive early childhood experience to all children and families is an investment in the future and our community. Information and accomplishments from the Program year

2 Making a difference - one family at a time. Our Mission is to provide high quality, comprehensive early childhood education programs for children from birth through school age; to provide parent education programs that strengthen the family, develop basic literacy, encourage job training and personal development; and to develop community partnerships and coordination of community-based services. Program Options CDS provides several program options to meet the needs of families: School year preschool program in La Junta, Lamar, Las Animas, Rocky Ford, Manzanola and Olney Springs Year round program for pregnant women, infants and toddlers with Center Based option in Boone, Home Visiting option in Pueblo, Otero, Crowley and Bent Counties, and Family Child Care option in La Junta and Pueblo. Seasonal programs (June through October ) for children of migrant farm workers serving infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in Alamosa, Center, Manzanola, Granada and Boone.

5 What s New! In June 2009, OJC CDS applied for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act monies to expand the Early Head Start Program. The application for grant monies was to expand infant and toddler services in two rural counties (Otero and Crowley) where CDS already provides Early Head Start services and to begin providing services to rural and urban families in Bent and Pueblo counties. The communities targeted for services are predominately rural, and have few options for quality early education services. These areas have a high rate of poverty, low paying jobs, limited access to healthcare, and limited or no access to transportation. All targeted areas have a higher percentage of children living in poverty, a higher percentage of children who receive free and reduced lunches and lower median incomes than the Colorado statewide averages. Providing early education that supports families as they pursue or maintain jobs is critical because the target counties have a much higher unemployment rate than the statewide average. In November 2009 CDS received the monies from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to expand Early Head Start Services. Early Head Start Expanding Services February 2010 CDS began providing Early Head Start Home Visiting services to 20 new families in Bent County. March 2010 CDS began providing Early Head Start Home Visiting services to 30 new families in Pueblo County. April 2010 CDS began providing Early Head Start Center Based services to 8 toddlers at the Boone Center. August 2010 CDS began providing Early Head Start services in Family Child Care homes in Pueblo and La Junta for 16 new children.

6 Services Provided Child Development Services is committed to providing quality services. This encompasses: Preparing children for school through individualized and appropriate language, literacy, numeracy and socialization activities. Promoting optimal health and wellness of each child and family through nutrition, physical and mental health services. Supporting families in developing, achieving and maintaining personal goals as a foundation for self-sufficiency. Parent education programs. Child Health and Nutrition Services Children who are healthy are more likely to succeed in school. OJC CDS is committed to a comprehensive health plan for each child, including regular health examinations, dental exams and vision and hearing screenings. From the time of enrollment, preventative health practices are a priority. New students are screened and their basic health needs are identified. To assure that problems are quickly addressed, staff work closely with parents and providers to schedule well-child visits, prenatal care, immunizations, general health care and dental visits for each child or pregnant women enrolled. Center based programs have on-site health staff who consult with parents and make referrals to health and dental services and community agencies. Steps are taken every day to promote good eating habits. Family style meals are served with a wide variety of healthy options in center based programs. Classroom nutrition activities along with workshops for parents promote life long healthy eating habits.

7 Approaches to Learning Language Development and Communication Education and Early Childhood Development Services Science Mathematics Literacy Child Development Services promotes school readiness for infants, toddlers and preschool aged children by working closely with parents, offering a wide spectrum of services, and providing core education instruction. Staff members work hand-inhand with parents to support the goals of the curriculum at home. Offering children a safe, nurturing, and engaging learning environment helps them gain the awareness, skills, and confidence necessary to succeed. Child Development Services promotes an inclusive environment that values and respects diversity. The varied experiences used in the program support the child s ever changing development, including the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive growth of each child. Creativity Physical Health and Development

Teachers assess children s progress at three different checkpoints throughout the year. Through use of Authentic Assessment including observations, work samples, and parent input, teachers evaluate children s progress by identifying and placing them at different steps along the developmental continuum. The steps include Forerunner, Step 1, Step 2, and Step 3. Teachers utilize ongoing assessment data to guide planning and curriculum development and to individualize planning for individuals and small groups of children. The Oral Language Matrix is used to assess English Language Learners in their acquisition of English in both Receptive and Expressive Language skills. The program utilizes assessment data for quality improvement planning and ongoing professional development training. MIGRANT & SEASONAL HEAD Outcomes Express is used to monitor children s progress. A combination of computer based activities and teacher rating checklists are utilized to evaluate a child s development, knowledge, and progress in the 13 mandated domains/elements/ Indicators. The mandated markers are grouped into the categories of Language Development, Literacy, Mathematics, and Social Emotional Development. Teachers also measure ongoing progress in receptive and communicative skills in the English language using the Oral Language Matrix. The Work Sampling System is used to gather observations and work samples of children s development in the areas that were chosen by the teachers and parents. The samplings are put on collection forms by the teachers and are discussed and then given to the parents. The goal areas are based on the Creative Curriculum Continuum, Developmental Profiles, and Screenings done by the parent and teachers Season Outcome Results: Social Emotional skills exhibited the highest gain with 25% growth in the developed category. Language and Literacy areas reflected similar growth patterns. Language increased 20% and Literacy increased 18% in the developed category. Math showed a growth of 17% in the developed category.

10 Disability Services Child Development Services supports the need for early identification and intervention and ensuring that children receive appropriate services as soon as necessary to support their continued development. Special needs children receive the full range of services received by all Head Start participants. Children suspected of having a disabling condition and/or children with a disability are provided services to include outreach recruitment/enrollment, screening for possible intervention, development and implementation of the Individual Education Plan (Individualized Education Plan or Individual Family Service Program). 10% of enrollment is reserved for children with special needs. Types of Disabilities and Numbers Served in Speech/Language Developmental Delays Part C (Infants & Toddlers) Mental Health Services Child Development Services believes that promoting mental health is a vital component of the work we do every day to enrich the lives of children, families and staff. We implement resources from the Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) and Devereux Early Childhood Foundations (DECA) that promotes social and emotional development and enhanced school readiness. We recognize that emotional and intellectual development cannot be separated. These two functions come together as the child actively explores the emotional, social and cognitive challenges of each of these stages. CDS focuses on the developing capacity of children from birth through age five to: experience, regulate, and express emotions; form close, secure interpersonal relationships and explore the environment and learn; all in the cultural context of family and community. CDS collaborates with mental Health Consultants in fostering the behavioral, emotional, and cognitive development of all children by: identifying and responding to children needs, plan interventions, and supporting the efforts of families to develop coping strategies.

11 Family & Community Partnership CDS provides support and referrals for families in a multitude of ways including crisis intervention, adult education programs, job seeking assistance, parenting classes, child care referrals and health/nutrition education. Families with children in center based programs work with a Family Advocate to set family goals and determine how to achieve their goals. Families in home based programs work with a home visitor to identify family strengths and receive support in education and nurturing their children. Parents are encouraged to volunteer in classrooms and serve on Policy Council and parent committees. Parents receive monthly newsletters with articles highlighting the education opportunities in classrooms and how these can be extended to home environment. Parent education programs provide families with information such as financial literacy, parenting, family literacy, emergency preparedness, substance abuse, and challenging behaviors. Program services are enhanced by the many community partners coordinating services with CDS. Community wide collaboration provides agencies the capacity to share resources and develop programs that support children and families.
