Strolling Thunder Colorado

Join Colorado families from across the state for the Strolling Thunder Colorado rally and march on Saturday, September 21 from 9:30 to 11:30 am! We’ll rally on the patio of the Spring Café at 14th Avenue and Grant Streets to bring attention to the health and well-being of babies and toddlers in Colorado, then we’ll march around the Colorado State Capitol with our strollers and wraps to visually connect young children with the decision-making that takes place under the gold dome. Register at: https://coloradokids.salsalabs.org/strollingthunder2019/index.html?page=register

During the summer and fall, state legislators develop the policies they will propose during the upcoming legislative session that convenes annually from January through May. By bringing together families with babies and toddlers to make their voices heard, we’ll remind state legislators to #ThinkBabies when making policy decisions. Early experiences shape how a baby’s brain develops, laying the foundation for future learning, behavior and health. Join us to bring statewide attention to what babies and families need to thrive.

The rally will kick off with a performance by the Seven Falls Indian Dancers who will then lead our stroll around the Capitol. Before and after the march, enjoy refreshments provided by the Spring Café and visit with community organizations that serve families with infants and toddlers. Strolling Thunder Colorado is an annual event hosted by the Raise Colorado coalition, the Early Childhood Council Leadership Alliance (ECCLA), the Colorado Association for Education of Young Children (COAEYC), the Colorado Children’s Campaign, Clayton Early Learning, the Denver Affiliate of the Black Child Development Institute, Guerrilla Mamas, and Think Babies.

Getting Into NYC Kindergarten: All of Your Options

Join Alina Adams, best-selling author of Getting Into NYC Kindergarten, and test prep experts from LectureLab for insider admissions know-how. Parents — you will get an overview of all your options. Do you know the difference between zoned and unzoned schools? Who gets priority for a Dual Language program? What is the difference between a Citywide and a District Gifted & Talented curriculum? How old does your child need to be to attend a public versus a private Kindergarten? Do you know the role Pre-K plays in admissions? If you answered “no” to even one question, then this is the workshop for you! This event is for parents of children aged 0-5.

All event tickets come with wine and light refreshments, learning materials, and a gift bag for the road. We do ask that no children attend our events, as we want to ensure that each participant is able to fully focus and engage in the presentation.
