    Programs sponsored by states, local municipalities or local nonprofits that prepare children, usually age three to five, to succeed in school. The programs are modeled on Head Start/Better Beginnings/Brighter Futures programs and are compensatory in nature targeting children from low income families or those who have or are at risk for a disability and who may have special needs. Services may include comprehensive development screenings, active learning, parent education programs, family activities, early literacy exercises, home visits and healthy snacks during the school day. In some instances, the programs are entirely home-based and focus on providing materials, instruction and support that enable the parent to prepare their child for entering school. Occasionally, the programs refer to short acclimatization sessions to make new pupils familiar with the school and classroom environment before the formal start of the school year.

    School Readiness Quality Improvement Project / United Way Weld CountySchool Readiness Quality Improvement Project works with early care and education facilities located in the neighborhoods of low-performing elementary schools. Each participating child care facility goes through a three-year process that includes a baseline evaluation, forming and implementing a quality improvement plan, and getting Qualistar rated, with the help of a coach and trainings. Providers begin the program by completing a self-evaluation rating in their classroom or home. Providers, along with their coach, use this baseline rating to develop a quality improvement plan to prepare the provider for a Qualistar rating. Providers then receive a 1-4 star rating.
