Childcare providers across Colorado and here in Arvada are struggling to keep up with the requirements that affect and regulate early childhood education. As a small childcare provider, I know how difficult and onerous it is to keep up with all the different rules and bylaws of the industry. This is why legislators need to immediately pass HB 22-1295, legislation that will help streamline programming and regulations of childcare businesses, and support families and businesses like mine.
In Colorado, early childhood education and family support programs severely lack the oversight necessary to assist those who care for and educate young children. This legislation would create an equal opportunity for families who are unable to access high quality childcare. Additionally, this legislation would help establish more streamlined early care and education services through a state agency and reduce the burdens small businesses, families, providers, and the early childhood workforce face in navigating these systems.
I’m encouraged to see that the Colorado legislature is moving quickly to assess and address the needs of the system, and I am confident that this will be the right move for our state and its small businesses, which will greatly serve their communities.
