Colorado Teaching Residency for Early Childhood Educators

With the passage of universal preschool through Proposition EE in November 2020, the need for highly trained early childhood educators who are equipped to teach an increasingly linguistically and culturally diverse population in Colorado has never been more urgent. In an effort to address these challenges, PEBC offers a systemic solution to critical early childhood workforce issues. These include:

  • Creating a licensing pathway that cultivates highly qualified, diverse early childhood educators at a moment when Colorado is facing a profound talent shortage
  • Solving systemic compensation and financial model barriers that impact recruitment and retention
  • Creating an innovation hub to serve as a “lab” to incubate workforce solutions
  • Increasing awareness and access to the pathway
