Mhelp1Through the MERAGEhelp Program, Early Learning Ventures and Project Helping match up child care providers needing a little TLC with willing volunteers interested in making significant impacts in their communities. These volunteers assist child care providers with painting, cleaning, basic maintenance, playground building, and beautification – all tracking back to raising the child care program’s Colorado Shines rating. These quality ratings are important indicators for families in search of high quality care, and contribute to a center’s overall licensure and compliance standing. Materials for the projects and volunteer time saves thousands of dollars for services that would otherwise have to be paid for out of pocket by the child care programs.
