An Early Childhood Assessement was conducted to determine the needs and strengths of the current system. The assessment process reviewed local and state level quantitative data as well as qualitative data gathered through local surveys and focus groups. The process identified the needs, strategies, and actions to be targeted over the next several years.
Through this process, the Great Start Collaborative identified themes regarding the needs of the early childhood system. This process led to the development of our 3-year goals.
Goal 1: Families have access to high quality services and resources to utilize them.
Goal 2: Conditions in the system support providers and agencies.
Goal 3: Children have support and preparation to transition to kindergarten.
Goal 4: Services reflect the input of families and providers.
