For all things early childhood, experts turn to Clayton Early Learning.

Clayton Early Learning provides national leadership to advance the field of early childhood education by researching, implementing and disseminating innovative teaching models and research-based, quality practices. We expand equitable access to high quality care and education through research and evaluation, partnerships with families, teacher preparation and coaching services, and effective early education policy.

What's New?

On behalf of the Clayton Early Learning Board of Trustees, we are thrilled to share that Rebecca (Becky) Crowe has been selected to be our organization’s next president and chief executive officer.

A year ago today, Clayton Early Learning, the Colorado Children’s Campaign, and a steering committee of diverse stakeholders, gave birth to Raise Colorado, a coalition that takes collective action to promote bold public policy and change public perception regarding the health and well-being of pregnant people, new families, infants, and toddlers.

Policy changes are needed to help Colorado babies thrive.

In partnership with the Colorado Children’s Campaign and Children’s Hospital Colorado, Clayton Early Learning proudly co-hosted Speak Up for Kids on March 19, 2019.
