Leading the work to update and expand upon the Early Childhood Workforce 2020 Plan.

In 2017, Colorado developed the Early Childhood Workforce 2020 Plan, setting ambitious goals related to workforce recruitment, preparation, well-being, retention, and data. In 2023, Early Milestones will lead work to update and expand upon the plan, creating a new Colorado Comprehensive Early Childhood Workforce Plan. The new plan will take a broad view of the early childhood workforce including home visiting, early childhood mental health, and early intervention.

Early Milestones will lead a landscape review, stakeholder engagement, development of recommendations, and facilitation of key decision-makers toward the creation of the final Plan, to be developed in partnership with the Colorado Department of Early Childhood and the Early Childhood Leadership Commission, by September 2023.
