Early Milestones Colorado is conducting important research to understand the impact of COVID-19 on the early childhood sector in Colorado, and we strongly encourage you to participate! If you do no other survey this summer, please complete this one.
Survey participants will be eligible to win a $100 gift card, and survey responses will help inform policy and funding decisions, as well as future efforts to sustain the early childhood sector in Colorado. It is important that we have as many voices and perspectives as possible. We encourage you to complete this survey and lend your voice to this vital effort!

COVID-19: Temporary Employment Opportunities for Early Childhood Professionals
Healthy Child Care Colorado’s job board is being used as a platform to connect licensed programs with temporarily available early childhood professionals.
- Child care providers who need temporary staff to stay open during this crisis may create a free Healthy Child Care Colorado account and post their job listings on the job board, under the category “Temporary – COVID-19.” Once their posting is reviewed, the position will be listed on the job board within 24 hours.
- Early childhood professionals who are temporarily available due to COVID-related closures and who wish to work at another licensed program should complete the Interested in Temporarily Working at a Child Care Program form. The Office of Early Childhood (OEC) will then verify qualifications and send a letter of verification.
