John Hickenlooper on Families & Children

 

 


Consolidate 23 early childhood services under one roof

Even in difficult times, we need to right by our kids. We seek your support in consolidating early childhood services under one roof to more efficiently & effectively aid children & parents. Currently, there are 23 separate funding streams administered through five different state agencies, each playing a role in early childhood support and services. Together, we are proposing a state-local strategy that integrates prevention and intervention, quality early learning and family support and engagement. Our plan will consolidate early childhood services in a new office in the Department of Human Services.

Abundant research demonstrates that if a child fails to learn how to read by the third grade, that child is more likely to drop out of high school and faces an enormous uphill battle for the rest of his or her life. We must develop intervention strategies with parents and teachers to identify failing students long before they reach the third grade and keep them from an illiterate future.
