The Department of Early Learning, in collaboration with our partners at the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) and Thrive by Five Washington (Thrive), has started the Washington Early Learning State and Local Coordination Project.
This project is meant to strengthen how different parts of the state’s early learning system–state agencies, regional collaborative efforts, K-12 education and child care providers–work together to support children in Washington.
Since February, the project conducted community research to better understand barriers to a strong early learning system, opportunities for improving it, and promising practices from other states. We are conducting an initial round of outreach, and want your input! Click here to learn more and take a brief survey. The survey closes at the end of July.
