Issues of Concern Regarding Montessori Early Childhood Programs in the State of Colorado

Colorado Montessori Association (CMA) is preparing to contact Colorado Department of Human Services Division of Early Care and Learning (DECL) to communicate issues that Montessori schools have in regard to the Colorado Child Care Regulations. Board members are in the process of reviewing both 7.701 General Rules for Child Care Facilities, 7.702 Rules Regulating Child Care Centers (less than 24-hour care), and the Administrative Guide for 7.702. Our goal is to meet with DECL with one voice but we need your help. You see the more eyes reviewing this material the better. If you would help us by communicating to CMA what you find to be the most frustrating about the regulations, we will carry that message to DECL.

For example,

7.702.2 D Any center having a director assigned to a classroom shall have qualified and adequate staff, allowing the director or qualified staff the ability to attend to the duties of a director as they arise.
