Colorado deserves the very best. After all, studies show that children who receive a high-quality early education are 20% more likely to graduate from high school and, on average, earn a 50% higher income.
We’re Empowering Coloradans to Be the Voice for Kids
Coloradans overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.
In 2019, we helped ensure universal kindergarten for all Colorado families. Now we are committed to expanding access to high-quality preschool.
Join us to help all children in Colorado succeed in school and life.
Currently, 51% of Coloradans live in a child care desert. This is not good for parents who must work, or for children who can benefit from structured child care and early education.
As a teacher and professional with more than 40 years of experience supporting children with special needs, I know that all children involved in quality early learning benefit immensely.

As a teacher with 21 years of experience in the classroom, I am excited to see our policymakers invest in kids in 2020, particularly by expanding pre-school and supporting child care workforce development.
