During his time in office, Governor Polis created opportunities for Colorado’s children by expanding access to child care, securing free full-day kindergarten, and establishing voluntary, free preschool for all four-year-olds across the state. “Governor Jared Polis is the kind of leader Colorado’s children deserve. Thanks to his leadership in making universal preschool a reality, all Colorado families will have access to quality preschool regardless of their economic circumstances or zip code. As a parent and public servant, he understands that Colorado’s children are key to Colorado’s future. We proudly endorse Governor Polis for reelection and look forward to working with him to boost state resources for child care and early education,” said Christy Gleason, SCAN’s Executive Director.

  • Championed full-day kindergarten (FDK), working with legislators to secure free access to full-day kindergarten for every five-year-old in Colorado.
  • Shepherded into law universal preschool for Colorado’s youngest learners, which is expected to save families an average of $4,300 per year.
