    Working Together to Brighten the Future for All Pueblo Children

    The Pueblo Early Childhood Council is one of the 17 original Colorado Community Consolidated Child Care Pilots established by the Colorado General Assembly in 1997. The Council is a group of community agencies committed to the success of children and families.  There are 31 total Councils in the state of Colorado.

    Mission Statement:  Pueblo Early Childhood Council is a diverse, active network that collaborates and advocates to enrich and strengthen the lives of children, families and the community

    Vision Statement:  Pueblo Early Childhood Council supports efforts for all young children and their families to grow and develop to meet their full potential.

    Membership to the Pueblo Early Childhood Council is open to any individual, business or agency at any time.  The Council meets as a whole on a monthly basis and workgroups meet as needed to develop and coordinate Council projects

    The Council has worked to bring awareness and funding to Pueblo through our five workgroups.  

    Public Awareness and Engagement Workgroup 
    Statement of Purpose:  Provide opportunities to all community members to impact the lives of children in positive meaningful ways.

    Professional Development Workgroup
    Statement of Purpose:  Assure every early childhood professional, trainer, parent or community member has ample opportunity to access high quality, valuable information through a variety of settings and methods, that will impact children in positive ways

    Family Connects Workgroup
    Statement of Purpose:  We will enhance the quality of life of Pueblo's children in the early years by collaborating to increase the awareness of the opportunities at a time in a child's life when we can make a positive impact.

    Social Emotional Workgroup
    Statement of Purpose:  We focus on the needs of families, child care providers, and pre-school teachers.  Our participants provide many opportunities for building relationships in the community with others who share the same passion for healthy children

    Health Advisory Workgroup
    Statement of Purpose:  We serve as a forum to exchange information about children's health issues and events. Members support one another in order to address problems and issues.
