Qualistar Colorado's Annual Twinkle Gala

The video below premiered at Qualistar Colorado’s Twinkle Gala. It features the Hope Center located in North Denver. Hope Center has partnered with Qualistar since the early 2000s to elevate quality in their program.

Hope Center is a shining example of how programs are able to reach higher levels of quality by working their quality improvement plan and taking advantage of on-going training, grants, and higher education—including the T.E.A.C.H. Scholarship. The T.E.A.C.H. scholarship program offers early childhood teachers, assistant teachers, family child care providers, and directors the funding needed to earn a credential, associate’s, or bachelor's degree.

By continuing their education, early childhood professionals gain a strong foundation in child development, learn new teaching practices, grow confidence in their abilities, and build stronger family partnerships.

Watch the video:

Over the years, these quality improvement activities have given Hope Center the foundation on which to build a high-quality program that is changing the lives of teachers, children and families. 

Our vision is that Colorado will be full of programs just like Hope Center. Individuals like Ms. B, featured in the video, remind us of a powerful quote by Benjamin Franklin: “An investment in knowledge pays the best dividends.”

Thank you to all who were able to attend the event. For those who couldn’t be in attendance or if you were unable to give at the event, you can make a contribution here to support our efforts to elevate quality across Colorado.
