The Early Childhood Colorado Framework

The Early Childhood Colorado Framework (Framework) is a vision and guide for early childhood efforts across Colorado. Originally developed in 2008 as a resource guide for comprehensive early childhood systems work in Colorado, the Framework has been used by state and local early childhood stakeholders as a resource to help identify needs, guide planning and decision making and build partnerships. The Early Childhood Leadership Commission (ECLC) guided a statewide stakeholder process to update the Framework in 2015.
