Kids Thrive

Our community and Colorado prosper when our kids thrive because they are our future workforce, leaders and community members. All kids, no matter where they live need high-quality care giving for their development. We all have a role to play in helping parents and caregivers prepare Colorado's kids for the future.

Children’s social and emotional development begins before birth and is just as important to their success as their cognitive and physical development.

Children’s physical health also begins before birth and lays the foundation for future healthy development.

Services and policies that help strengthen families, prevent abuse and neglect, aid caregivers struggling with adversity, and promote positive interactions within families and caregivers help kids develop their potential.
