Join us on Wednesday, March 24 from 5:30 to 7:00 pm for a town hall meeting about the future of preschool. The event includes a panel discussion with parent, educator, and community leader perspectives on what is needed to reimagine preschool in Colorado and to ensure that the early childhood system serves all young children well. Following the panel, policymakers including Representative Emily Sirota, D-9, will reflect upon the panelists’ comments and share their perspective on potential policy changes this legislative session and into the future.

In fall 2020, Colorado voters passed Proposition EE to create a program that would offer 10 hours of preschool to every 4-year old in the state who opts in. Over the past several months as community leaders, parents, educators, and others have met to discuss and reimagine preschool in Colorado, we’ve collectively learned about the priorities of various community members, opportunities and challenges facing diverse communities across Colorado, best practices for implementing a universal preschool program, and potential unintended consequences. We hope you’ll attend our March 24 town hall meeting to learn from community leaders and imagine a system that supports children, parents, and educators.
