The Early Childhood Colorado Framework (Framework) was developed in 2008 as a resource and guide for comprehensive early childhood systems work in Colorado. In 2015, new research, state investments and progress on initiatives inspired leaders to refresh this valuable tool.
Milestones was a strategic partner in the collaborative Framework refresh process, which was led by the Early Childhood Leadership Commission. More than 700 stakeholders–policymakers, early childhood experts, director service providers, funders and state agency staff–have shared their best thinking on the current Framework and desired changes for the update. The updated Framework was unveiled in July 2015. Click here to view the Framework and related tools.
