  • includes and provides adult learning principles and practices, deepens coaching competencies, and facilitates conscious reflective practices.
  • helps coaches to differentiate specific professional development strategies and when to effectively use each strategy to achieve desired outcomes and goals.
  • includes and provides specific barrier busting strategies for how to overcome challenges individuals commonly face when implementing new practices, modifying unsuccessful habits, and achieving goals.
  • provides practical universal and targeted coaching strategies to facilitate and empower learners to change, solve their own problems and become responsible for their own professional development, which is what ultimately fosters sustainable change.
  • teaches coaches how to accompany and facilitate the learner with the daily implementation, experimentation and refinement necessary to successfully achieve desired results, and expand intentional practices.
To meet the requirement for the Colorado Coaching Credential participants must attend all four days. A certificate of attendance will be provided upon completion.

Family Support & Education Committee
Aug 1 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

This committee meets the first Thursday of the month from 1 – 2:30 pm in CPCD Room 210 (2340 Robinson Street). For more about this committee, please contact Erika Cincotta at 719.466.9562.

The Family Support & Education Committee assists in the work of Alliance for Kids which aligns its work with the work with the Strategic Plan and Early Childhood Colorado Framework

The relationship between children and their families is the foundation upon which children’s lives depend. The care and support of the family is crucial to a child’s overall successful development. By providing support and information to families, the Alliance for Kids ensures that each child has that necessary foundation. We collaborate with the providers of early childhood services, and the families they serve, to ensure that the children of El Paso County have what is required to succeed in school and life.

  • Strong families and healthy children create thriving communities.
  • Every parent needs support at home, at work and throughout the community, from families, friends, neighbors, and community resources.

We recognize that true partnership occurs when parents and families have the support they need along with the knowledge and skills to function in leadership roles.
