The Learning & Development Committee is made up of agencies and individuals who work collaboratively on a seamless system of care to provide access, quality, and equity in learning and development for children prenatal to age eight and their families. It assists in the work of Alliance for Kids which aligns its work with the Strategic Plan and Early Childhood Colorado Framework.
The Learning & Development Committee has a standing agenda item for Education & Advocacy. The discussion includes: 1) educating families and the community on characteristics of quality early education and child care and the long term impact on children, families and the community; and 2) efforts to communicate relevant legislation to the community and organize community advocacy around Council approved policies.
