Jennifer Landrum

For the past 20 years, Jennifer Landrum has worked in the field of early childhood education and development as a policy advocate at the school district, city, county, and state levels. Jennifer served as the President and CEO of the Denver Preschool Program (DPP) from May 2013 through January 2019. Under her leadership, DPP continuously increased tuition support to families year-over-year; directed more funding to families living below 300 percent of the federal poverty level guidelines; reinstated summer programming that had been cut in 2010; transitioned to a new Quality Improvement Framework that emphasized the importance of positive teacher-student interactions and included achievement awards to teachers, directors and programs; and strengthened its child outcomes and organizational evaluation programs.
