A new report from Early Milestones Colorado, Looking to the Past to Shape Colorado’s Future: 30 Years of Progress for Young Children and Families, takes an expansive and in-depth look at the progress made in Colorado’s early childhood systems – as well as priorities for the work that remains.

This report is intended to help educate policymakers on the remarkable progress made over the past 30 years, and provide context and considerations for state leaders and other early childhood stakeholders. It’s also a resource to help inform and shape priorities in the field, provide additional analysis to help guide future work, and share the stories of how far Colorado has come in improving and strengthening its early childhood systems.
