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.

While a return to school this week may be routine for kids and parents, many families in Mesa County and thousands more across Colorado have a new cause for celebration this month: full-day kindergarten.
Providing quality early learning for Colorado’s youngest learners is a powerful step toward establishing equity in education and leveling the playing field for Colorado’s kids.
As an educator, I know how critical high-quality early learning is to academic success. So, I am excited that full-day kindergarten legislation has received strong bipartisan support and will soon be signed into law by Gov. Polis.
