Better Beginnings Podcast



Struggling to find or create quality childcare & preschool programs in Colorado? You’re not alone. We can help.

Colorado has some of the most expensive childcare and preschool rates in the country. And regardless of income levels, our current early childhood system places unnecessary burdens on families looking to access high quality childcare and education options. But one bill is about to change how our entire early childhood system operates, and it could become a model for the country.

The Better Beginnings Podcast follows one family’s harrowing search for childcare in Colorado. Along the way, we’ll explore how our early childhood system got so wonky, provide tips for navigating our existing system and explain how things will likely change under our new system — and what it means for families and early childhood providers.

I would like to see business people try to solve social problems with the same imagination and energy they use to finance a factory or make a deal. Don’t call it philanthropy; call it corporate social investment. Make it integral to business.
