A major proving ground for all things early childhood, Clayton Early Learning is Colorado’s leading catalyst in providing early care and education, and collaborating with others to improve these important services. Our work focuses on ensuring optimal development during the critical birth-to-5 period for all children, especially those of limited opportunities. We succeed in closing learning gaps of disadvantaged children through a powerful model unique to Clayton Early Learning that harnesses the synergy of three dynamic initiatives – research, practice and training.
