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.

As we move into 2019, RMECC will continue to maintain a strong commitment in providing an exceptional opportunity for the early childhood community. Denver’s Early Childhood Council and ECCLA will continue our partnership again to deliver top-notch keynote speakers, 11 professional development tracks and more than 150 workshops and presentations.
