The Early Childhood Educator Tax Credit is an innovative way to build economic self-sufficiency among the early childhood workforce and add stability to the $1.4 billion early care & education industry in Colorado.

Small business owners and parents who rely on early care and education to work would also experience lower turnover in staff as employees experience better economic stability.View Publication
