According to authorizing legislation (HB07-1062), it is the role of Colorado’s 30 Early Childhood Councils to:
“Improve and sustain the availability, accessibility, capacity and quality of early childhood services for children and families throughout the state.”
Early childhood services are defined by the legislation as including:
- Early Learning
- Family Support and Parent Education
- Social, Emotional, and Mental Health
Early Childhood Councils across Colorado bring together dedicated partners from each of these service areas to coordinate, increase and improve the education, health, social/emotional, and parenting opportunities available to all young children and their families.
