The vision of the Council is that every young child in Denver enters school ready to succeed.
The mission of Denver's Early Childhood Council is to serve as Denver’s early childhood hub, leveraging resources, opportunities and connections to create a quality system that positively impacts the lives of children and their families.
The Council's collaborative efforts take into account key areas that ultimately impact a child’s school readiness: early learning, family support and engagement, social-emotional development, and health.
* Coordinate collaborative decision-making about federal, state, local and philanthropic early childhood education resources in Denver
* Facilitate collaborative service delivery among public and private early learning providers
* Increase the quality, access, equity, and availability of early childhood care and learning services for all families
* Respond to needs of parents and families in Denver
As Executive Director of the Council I provide leadership for the development and timely delivery of initiatives in support of the mission, and assure quality implementation and sustainability of programs as well as providing oversight of 25 staff and annual operational budget of $4M.
