It’s time for Colorado to ensure every child has access to full-day kindergarten, no matter their zip code or their family’s ability to pay.
We’re Empowering Coloradans to Be the Voice for Kids
Coloradans overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.
This is key because research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development.
We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.
Colorado in the News
In Colorado, children may only be a quarter percent of the population, but they are 100 percent of our future. Early childhood development is the best long-term investment we can make for prosperity and economic growth in the Centennial State.
Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) CEO Mark Shriver today applauded the Colorado House of Representatives for approving HB 1262, legislation that fully funds full-day kindergarten across the state.
A Grand Junction mom pushes Washington to pump cash into early education gaps at home, and across the country.
State Polling Results
SCAN commissioned a bipartisan polling team to conduct survey research among general election voters
in five states to gauge their opinions about early childhood education and early intervention policies.
In addition to general election voters, SCAN conducted interviews among both Democratic and Republican primary voters.
The results showed that legislators and candidates looking for issues with broad appeal that can meaningfully
improve the lives of their constituents should invest in our youngest learners and early intervention programs.
