Early Childhood Initiatives

Safe and stable early years are the foundation for improving outcomes for Kansans and for Kansas communities. The Early Childhood Initiatives team supports organizations' and coalitions' efforts to create systems and policies that prioritize very young children and their families. Communities make more progress improving lives when we get the early years right.

Bringing deep experience in both coalition building and early childhood policy, staff act as an extension of leadership teams. We contribute structure needed by the disparate partners who come together to make progress on early childhood issues. Our involvement is proven to help groups focus on system-level change, engage new partners, work across sectors, and communicate about the promise of lasting solutions.
