The Guidelines Can Help

What kids experience and learn from the day they enter the world through their early years in school lays the foundation for their success in life.

We all play an important role in giving children a great start.

The research-based Colorado Early Learning and Development Guidelines provide descriptions for what children can know and be able to do so that everyone who interacts with young children can prepare them for a lifetime of success.

How you can use the Colorado Early Learning & Development Guidelines:

  • Learn about the Guidelines
  • Watch the videos
  • Try out the tips
  • Check back with the Guidelines through age 8

The Guidelines describe how a typical child develops but it is important to understand that each child learns and develops at their own pace. Because each child is different, caregivers should talk with a health care provider or other trusted professional about any questions or concerns. For more information, please contact us.
