The Colorado Department of Human Services Office of Early Childhood provides oversight of the early childhood councils.

The goal of Early Childhood Councils is to improve the quality, access and equity of services across the domains areas of: Learning & Development; Health & Well-Being; and Family Support & Education. By coordinating and leveraging existing early childhood services, Councils reduce duplication, facilitate access to services, and maximize the use of a broad array of community resources.
