Preparing Teachers
to Bring Out the Best

Colorado’s early childhood education community turns to Clayton Early Learning to learn about effective and innovative practices for teaching young children. We provide comprehensive support to early childhood programs, measured to document success. While we typically offer training and coaching to educators working throughout the state at hundreds of different sites, the Training Center on our campus is also a busy training hub. Here, we connect research and training to practice, and garner more valuable data about what’s working in the effective preparation and training of teachers. At the same time, we gain a better understanding of the links between program quality and teacher preparation, in order to promote systemic change that will improve outcomes for children and families statewide.
