Did You Know?

Early Milestones Colorado, the Colorado Department of Human Services, and the Colorado Department of Education spearheaded the Transforming the Early Childhood Workforce in Colorado project. The goal of this project is to develop strategies to support and retain a well-qualified early educator workforce in Colorado and to assure that they are appropriately compensated to be able to attract talented new professionals into the field. As a part of this project, the University of Colorado Denver and NORC at the University of Chicago conducted a statewide survey of early educators in Colorado to identify the current strengths, gaps, and unmet needs in the workforce.

The reports will be available on the Early Milestones Colorado website within the next few weeks.
