Early Childhood and School Readiness Legislative
Commission. For 5 income tax years, the bill creates a refundable income
tax credit for an eligible early childhood educator who:
  • Has an adjusted gross income below specified thresholds;
  • For at least 6 months of the taxable year, holds an early

childhood professional credential and is either the head of
a family child care home or is employed with an eligible
early childhood education program or a family child care
The bill specifies that an early childhood education program must
have achieved at least a level 2 quality rating under the Colorado shines
quality rating and improvement system and either have fiscal agreements
with the Colorado child care assistance program or meet the federal early
head start or head start standards for a program. The amount of the credit
is dependent on the eligible early childhood educator's credentialing level
and is annually adjusted for inflation.
The department of human services, or a successor department, is
required to provide the department of revenue with an electronic report
of each individual who held an early childhood professional credential
during the previous calendar year for which the credit is allowed.
