The Department of Early Childhood (CDEC) wants to build and improve programs and services to support young children and their families. 

The CDEC also wants to make sure children are ready to succeed when they start kindergarten. This survey is designed to help the Department understand what families with children between birth and five years old in the state of Colorado want and need. All parents or guardians of children under six years old are invited to participate. The information collected in this survey will guide the work of the CDEC, how spending decisions are made, and will support access to quality early childhood programs and services throughout the state.
