Why Give?

Change the way Colorado sees a child’s first teacher

85% of a child’s brain develops by the age of three. Your donation will help provide parents, soon-to-be parents, and caregivers with resources to make the most of these crucially important, developmental first three years of a child’s life. They are their child’s first teacher.

Nurturing a child’s emotional, cognitive and physical well-being early in life will give that child the best chance to succeed in school and life. Successful individuals will build strong, healthy and independent Colorado communities. And doesn’t that make Colorado a better place for everyone?

Our work supporting and training our partner affiliates across our State forms the foundation of everything we do. When we educate these leaders in the importance of early childhood development then we educate the entire state.
