Young Parent Program


Our Young Parent Program (YPP) is offered to parents (who are under 21) of infants and toddlers who are seeking to obtain their high school diploma. Child care is provided for their infants and toddlers while the young parents attend academic classes from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. We offer child care for infants and toddlers 3 weeks to 36 months old. We can take 7 infants and 8 toddlers in our program. Our child care is a licensed, accredited, Early Head Start program. We are also a level 4 in the Colorado Shines rating system. Our director, infant, and toddler teachers are Early Childhood Education qualified through the State of Colorado. Through Head Start we provide diapers, wipes, formula, snacks, and lunch during the day. We also provide parent-teacher conferences & home visits to discuss infants’ and toddlers’ development in the Fall and Spring. Each day the young parents attend an Early Childhood parent/baby class during 6th hour. Students can earn ¼ of elective credit each quarter through taking this class. We are a community in YPP and we value being able to support young parents as they navigate parenthood and earning their diplomas.
