Supporting local efforts for children and families

Earlier this year, Colorado passed HB22-1295 which created Local Coordinating Organizations (LCOs). These LCOs will support the implementation of Colorado’s new Universal Preschool Program (UPK) next year. Long term, they will help families access many early childhood and family support programs.

To help LCOs be successful, Early Milestones is partnering with the Colorado Department of Early Childhood to provide ongoing training and support for LCOs. Topics include planning, data use, and connecting them to one another as they build and launch UPK across the state. To learn more about LCOs and find who to contact in your community, please visit the CDEC website.
