Denver's Early Childhood Council

Our mission 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. 

At Denver's Early Childhood Council, we believe that all children deserve access to high-quality child care, early learning opportunities, health and mental health support services. Every day we work with child care providers, policy makers and other partners to enhance the quality and availability of these services for children and their families, because when children and families thrive, our community is strengthened. 

The Early Childhood Council Leadership Alliance (ECCLA) is a membership organization dedicated to improving access to quality services and supports for young children through a statewide network of Early Childhood Council leaders and key stakeholders.
