Better Beginnings

Gary Community Ventures

Better Beginnings is a podcast exploring Colorado’s changing early childhood system. Season 1 followed one family’s harrowing search for childcare in a state that has some of the most expensive childcare and preschool rates in the nation. Season 2 will premiere in September 2023. It will explore how to navigate Colorado’s new universal pre-K system as well as several bold, new ballot measures and public-private partnerships that could improve it. Season 1 is available now. This serial-style, 4-episode podcast provides tips for finding childcare and preschool options in our existing early childhood system, explores how our system got so confounding, and explains how new legislation and technology is challenging the status quo. If Colorado can continue to innovate, it could mean dramatic improvements for kids, families and providers — and our early childhood system could become a model for the country. read less
