About the

The Early Childhood Colorado Framework is a shared vision that Colorado is a place where all children are valued, healthy and thriving. Since 2008, the Colorado early childhood community has embraced the Framework. The Framework includes guiding principles, a visual definition of a strong early childhood system including program domains and infrastructural elements, desired outcomes, and a shared vision.


The Framework website provides an opportunity to share program information and to highlight progress that Colorado is making on the Framework Outcomes.


The Framework website is intended for use by providers, policymakers, researchers and local and state agencies.
