Early Milestones Colorado is a nonprofit organization that advances success for young children by accelerating innovation, the use of best practices, and systemic change. We envision a Colorado in which every child is valued, healthy, and prepared to thrive in school and in life.
In the early 2000s, hundreds of stakeholders created a plan to increase coordination and generate better results across the early childhood system. Since then, Colorado has made great progress in implementing this plan, called the “three-legged stool.” Launched in 2015 by a group of Colorado’s leading early childhood funders, Early Milestones serves as the third “leg” — an agile, flexible nonprofit to support local and state efforts, accelerate public goals, spur innovation, and work toward sustainable, large-scale impact.
Early Milestones is a proud recipient of the 2019 El Pomar Foundation Award for Excellence.
