Colorado House Bill 21-1304 creates a new state Department of Early Childhood. The law calls for public engagement to inform the department transition plan and implementing universal preschool (see timeline below).
Early Milestones is leading this engagement process under direction by the Early Childhood Leadership Commission (ECLC). We are facilitating subgroup meetings, monthly town halls, and listening sessions (learn more). Results will be delivered to the Transition Working Group (TWG), which is made up of ECLC co-chairs, Governor’s office staff, and state agency leads. Information is also shared with the Transition Advisory Group (TAG).
