The public comment period will close Thursday, August 31, 2017

Dear Montessori Lovers in Colorado,

CMA has been working hard with the Colorado Office of Early Childhood to examine the Early Childhood licensure rules through the lens of alternative early childhood education (Montessori specifically).  As a result, CDHS has sent out possible changes and I am hoping you will review the proposed changes and make comment. 

CMA is particularly excited about the proposed changes to 7.701.13 Waivers D. 1, a. b. and c. These changes would provide clarity for the community and the appeals panel around materials waiver requirements, enabling high quality Montessori early childhood education programs to implement their philosophy and curriculum to benefit children in a safe, healthy, and stimulating environment. 

Whether you agree or disagree with the proposed changes - NOW IS THE TIMEThe public comment period will close Thursday, August 31, 2017.

They are willing to listen to our opinions and value our input.  Please - let your voice be heard.  Below is a template that you are welcome to use to respond in the comments section of the website.  Once you are on the website, please click on "Open: Public Comment on General Rules for Child Care Facilities and Licensing Fees".

I would also encourage you to forward this on to your Montessori families.  Their voices are highly valued as well.

Thank you!
