The Colorado Early Learning and Development Guidelines (Guidelines) describe the trajectory of children's learning and development from birth to 8 years old in Colorado. They include a broad description of children's growth to ensure a holistic approach to creating positive early childhood environments. For each age level, this document addresses approaches to learning, health and physical development, social and emotional development, language, literacy, numeracy, logic and reasoning, and other subject-specific learning. Although the specific domains used to organize descriptions of children's development evolve within the Guidelines to reflect the specific requirements of each age group, they maintain a broad view of the whole child and describe all aspects of children's growth., "The following organizations and agencies supported the development of Colorado's early learning and development guidelines.
