Colorado Early Learning and Development Guidelines- Birth-8 years old 

The Early Learning and Development Guidelines describe the path of a child’s learning and development from birth to 8 years old.

The Guidelines are designed so that everyone who cares for young children can play an important part in giving them a strong start. The Guidelines are based on research and widely accepted strategies, offering tips on learning, health and physical development, social and emotional development, language, literacy, numeracy, logic and reasoning, and other subject-specific learning.

The Guidelines are available in English and Spanish
