We are excited to present the Denver Preschool Program (DPP) 2025 Strategic Plan. This plan results from months of hard work and collaboration from our Board, Staff, Contractors, community partners, DPP families, preschools, and early childhood education providers.
We continue to focus on providing equitable access to preschool for all young children in Denver. Our primary goal is to create a fair and just early childhood landscape, removing barriers for families, especially those from historically underserved populations and areas while supporting the early education workforce. We understand the significance of investing in early childhood education, particularly as it gains prominence at the state and national levels.
To achieve our vision, we asked ourselves challenging questions about our organization’s direction and how to ensure equitable access to education. This plan covers a period of significant change as universal preschool expands across Colorado, and DPP takes on additional responsibilities as the local coordinating organization (LCO) for Denver. We aim to serve more children and provide enhanced support to families. The plan includes our updated organizational vision, mission, values, strategic goals, and pathways to success, which are specific, measurable, and achievable. Together, they form a roadmap for progress.
We invite the community to join us in creating one of the most robust, equitable, and impactful early childhood systems in the country. Exciting work lies ahead, and we eagerly look forward to partnering with you to fulfill our shared vision of investing in Denver’s families and youngest learners. Together, we can make a difference!
