Colorado’s Office of Early Childhood has earned a $5.8 million federal grant to accelerate efforts to ensure kids are ready for school. The award, part of the Every Student Succeeds Act, will help the state analyze the current early childhood education system and support a strategic planning process. The ultimate goal is to increase the availability of quality early care and education options for families facing the most barriers to them. The one-year grant makes Colorado eligible to compete for additional grants of up to $45 million over three years. Click here to learn more.
