Clayton Early Learning (Clayton) prepares young children for school through family- centered classrooms and home-based practices, research/program evaluation, and professional development. Clayton partners closely with The Colorado Children’s Campaign (CCC), which provides research, organizes an extensive statewide network of child advocates and serves as the leading voice for kids at the State Capitol. 

Colorado stakeholders came together in 2018 to prioritize long-term goals for the early childhood field, and develop advocacy tools to advance a shared agenda in the coming years. With the shifting political climate due to the 2018 elections, they will educate the incoming administration and legislators on early childhood and the priorities they have set, with a focus on: ensuring all children get a healthy start, increasing access to quality early care and learning, advancing priorities to support the early childhood workforce, and engaging advocates and partners in advocacy to elevate the profile of early childhood issues.
