COVID-19 Updates and Resources

Healthy Child Care Colorado is hosting a series of ECE Huddles to elevate needs that arise and provide information that can support child care programs throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

What is a huddle? A huddle is a short meeting that occurs frequently so teams are informed and aligned. Huddles also provide a venue for participants to share, celebrate, and motivate one another.
