Policy and Advocacy
We are proud to serve as subject-matter experts on issues that impact children and families. By informing the decisions that affect Colorado’s early childhood system, we expand our avenues of impact to include research, training, practice, and advocacy in early childhood education. We proudly provide subject matter expertise to illuminate issues impacting Colorado’s youngest children and their families.

Raise Colorado Coalition
Since 2018, Clayton Early Learning has co-convened the statewide Raise Colorado Coalition (formerly the Prenatal, Infant, Toddler Coalition) along with the Colorado Children’s Campaign and a steering committee of diverse stakeholders. Raise Colorado 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.
Raise Colorado is made possible with the support of ZERO TO THREE's Think Babies™ campaign, a national movement designed to bring attention to the many issues that affect what babies and families need to thrive. Key campaign priorities include quality, affordable child care; time for parents to bond with their babies; healthy emotional development; and strong physical health and nutrition.
