Colorado Early Learning & Development Guidelines


The early years of a child’s life are critically important for learning and development. No matter how we interact with children from birth to age eight — whether we’re experts, early childhood teachers, first-time parents, or involved friends and neighbors — we all play a role in giving kids a strong, healthy start.

The Colorado Early Learning and Development Guidelines provide practical tips and points of reference that anyone can use to help kids grow physically, intellectually and emotionally. The Guidelines support children with different cultures, languages and abilities.

By providing these resources to everyone who interacts with children, we can help ensure that we’re all working together to support young children’s development.
