How the Guidelines help kids

The Guidelines provide practical tips and information that anyone can use to help kids grow physically, intellectually and emotionally.

These are guidelines, not rigid standards that dictate a one-size-fits-all approach to a child’s development. They recognize that every child is unique and will develop in different ways, at varied paces, and in different types of environments. The Guidelines can be adapted to children with different abilities, cultures and languages.

Now you can help make sure people know about the Guidelines in your community so all Colorado kids get off to a strong, healthy start.
