In 2011, the Colorado Association for the Education of Young Children (CAEYC), Denver Preschool Program, Colorado Head Start Association, and Early Childhood Education Association of Colorado came together to sponsor the first Rocky Mountain Early Childhood Conference (RMECC), a regional conference focused on the many aspects of the early childhood field. These organizations worked to coordinate the communication of early childhood programs and policy, increase access to professional development for educators, and promote the agenda for early childhood education. This collaboration created an environment to learn from a broad range of leaders, educators and experts representing the variety of fields that impact early childhood education.

In 2016, Denver’s Early Childhood Council, CAEYC and the Early Childhood Council Leadership Alliance (ECCLA) partnered to deliver a two-day agenda filled with workshops and presentations designed to meet the professional development needs of early childhood practitioners and foster an environment that encourages the community to learn, share, and network. From 2017 to 2020, the Council and ECCLA continued our partnership in making this the best annual regional conference of its kind.

Denver’s Early Childhood Council now hosts the conference, delivering top-notch keynote speakers, 11 professional development tracks, and more than 150 workshops and presentations.
