Early Childhood Council Leaders

Colorado’s 35 Early Childhood Councils (representing all 64 counties) have a unique role within their local communities to serve as an early childhood hub. Together, Councils improve the quality of early learning environments to prepare young children to enter kindergarten; build the resources and skills of families; ensure families have access to social, physical, and mental health services; and deliver resources to increase the effectiveness of early childhood professionals.
