Congress is back in session and setting priorities for the year to come. Let them know they need to focus on ensuring a bright future for children!
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.
Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) applauds the Colorado General Assembly for passing House Bill 20B-1002: Emergency Relief Programs for the Child Care Sector. Not only will the bill help to sustain and protect Colorado’s existing child care providers through the creation of a Child Care Sustainability Grant Program, but it will also work to rebuild Colorado’s child care industry – which is suffering severely from COVID-related closures – through a new Emerging and Expanding Child Care Grant Program. The bill passed with strong bipartisan support in the House and Senate.
Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) applauds the Colorado electorate for voting for kids during yesterday’s election by passing Proposition EE. The overwhelming passage of Proposition EE is a historic moment for Colorado and an unprecedented opportunity for Colorado’s kids, providing free, voluntary access to at least 10 hours of preschool per week to all Colorado four-year-olds, beginning in 2023.
Voting "yes" on Proposition EE will not only ensure that kids in Colorado are given the opportunity to thrive and succeed, but it would also help make Colorado a nationwide leader in early education.
