Early Childhood Leadership Commission

The purpose of Early Childhood Leadership Commission is to improve outcomes for young children ages birth to eight and their families by advancing the alignment, coordination, and efficiency of programs and services.


The Early Childhood Colorado Framework is the Commission's guide for developing a comprehensive, coordinated service delivery system for Colorado's youngest children. This high-level leadership commission will accelerate and sustain Colorado's commitment to improving outcomes for young children. The Commission will:

  • Develop an inter-agency data system to help streamline services, drive continuous quality improvement, and promote shared accountability.
  • Recommend a state-level oversight and coordination structure for early childhood that increases efficiencies and supports equity and access for children and families.
  • Improve the quality, access and capacity of early childhood services across all sectors
