child care insight

Qualistar Colorado and its Qualistar Rating™ team partner with programs on the assessment phase of their quality improvement journey. Evidence of a high quality early learning experience can be found in many aspects of a program. Strong Family Partnerships, age-appropriate learning experiences, positive interactions between teachers and children, effective health and safety procedures, and the ongoing training and education of the program staff are just some of the critical areas that contribute to the quality of care provided to children and families. These and other criteria are assessed per program by the Rating team. Learn more about Qualistar Rating™ components and the rating process.
My name is Kara Downing but now days I go by Miss Kara. I grew up in south eastern Colorado on a 2500 acre farm with my brother and sister. I was the youngest sibling and always wanted a younger brother or sister. As a young child I was always helping take care of my younger cousins and I loved babysitting. My grandma was an elementary teacher and I remember going to help in her classroom and the idea of teaching seemed like so much fun. I believe all of these factors helped my find my passion with working with children.
I am a stay-at-home mom of a 4-year-old boy and 1. 5-year-old boy. I am looking for an infant/toddler to watch in our home, in addition to my own boys. We are a smoke-free home and have a friendly Shih tzu dog who has been a part of our family since before my 1st son was born. I have 16 years of child care experience and have a Bachelor's Degree in Human Development and Family Studies. I have open availability during the week and am also available on nights and weekends too! I am very flexible when it comes to drop off and pick up times. I would love to be able to watch your child, teach them and allow them to grow and develop. Activities throughout the day will meet your child's physical, emotional and social needs. I would love the opportunity to help out your family in caring for your child.
Our curriculum has been thoughtfully selected to guide the daily experiences at Prestige Preschool Academy. A rich learning environment is developed in the classroom as children and teachers engage in meaningful conversations, stories, singing, creative activities and outdoor play that engage the whole child. Each day is specifically balanced to provide teacher and child-centered experiences which lead to group and individual hands on exploration. Children will find success as they develop physically, linguistically, intellectually, socially, and emotionally.Read more about Curriculum & Programs

It is NOT a different type of license or a substitute for licensing or accreditation. The intent of the Qualistar Rating™ is to give licensed programs a measurement of quality, by star levels, and recommendations on how to improve the quality of the care they provide. Accreditation by a national accrediting agency is a separate process that has its own set of standards and validation system.
Currently 1 OPENING - ages 16 months through school aged! A native of Denver, I have provided licensed child care in my home since 1980. I have excellent references. I serve nutritious, high quality, home cooked meals. I offer an atmosphere where learning can take place in an easy, fun environment. There are plenty of outdoor experiences. Activities include daily story time and a Christian based preschool program. In the summer, children ages 3 and up may take daily swimming lessons offered through Parks and Recreation, usually for a period of 9 weeks, Monday - Thursday. Lessons are parent paid. Thank you.

I started babysitting when I was about 12 and have been watching children on and off since then! I have watched children from 1-week-old to 12 years old so I have experience with all age groups. I really enjoy working with children and am hoping to become a pediatric PA after I graduate. I am CPR, First Aid, and AED certified. Currently, I am a nanny for two awesome kiddos but have availability nights and weekends. There is also a possibility for a nanny share type situation if you're looking for more frequent care. Please feel free to message me and I promise I will do my best to make something work! :)
Hello! My name is Stephanie and I have a Bachelors of Science in Human Development and Family Studies, with a concentration in infants, toddlers and preschool from Auburn University. I have been a lead teacher in numerous classrooms ranging from the age of 2 months to 5-year-olds. I have my Director's Certificate through the state of Colorado and have worked myself up from Director of Curriculum to Director of a Preschool in less than a year. I have recently left my position as Director to pursue other opportunities to advance my career. I look forward to getting to know you and your family some more!
In high school I was involved with sports (softball, basketball, track) was FFA vice president, and a member of the National Honor Society. After high school I received an athletic scholarship to play softball. While in college I started a physical education program at a local Lutheran Church School. The people and the children became family to me and I was offered a part time teaching assistant job working with the kindergarten class. During the summers of college I spent my time coaching softball to young girls. Over my four years of coaching we won four state titles, four regional titles, three Nationals appearances as well as an invitation to the Babe Ruth Little League World Series.
