Last Update September 19, 2014
Published annually, the Signature Report highlights some of the most critical issues facing the early childhood education industry in Colorado, including the cost and availability of child care in the state and licensed capacity compared to Colorado’s child population.
This year’s report compares Colorado’s preschool program to national quality benchmarks and to Colorado’s child care licensing standards. Preschool programs are in the political spotlight due to President Obama’s proposal for a new early education initiative. Within this context, the Signature Report explores how preschool education is provided at the federal, state and local levels by a variety of programs and with support from a range of funding streams.
Through further analysis of issues such as those explored in this report, we aim to encourage an ongoing dialogue among decision makers and stakeholders about next steps for strengthening the child care delivery system in our state.
