ECEA will REPRESENT your interests

As an ECEA member you have a a lobbying firm actively representing the private sector to shape policies that impact your business and the children you educate on a day to day basis. ECEA members have an exclusive voice among major policy-setting groups in Colorado’s ECE advocacy and regulatory community.

On the implementation side of business, ECEA is actively working with other advocates statewide to impact changes that will improve the day to day operations of your business.

ECEA of Colorado is the ONLY voice representing the unique business interests of program owners, operators and administrators. While there are dozens of ECE related organizations throughout the state; ECEA is the ONLY organization exclusively dedicated to impacting legislative issues affecting those who employee and lead our industry statewide. 

Every year the ECEA Bill Tracker will be posted on our website and updated regularly throughout the legislative session.
