Goal 7: Quality and Environments

Outcome Statement – Kansas early childhood care and education programs and environments are high-quality, safe, and nurturing.

Kansans told us there are limited resources to support new facilities, capital improvements, and development of additional, high-quality learning materials. Kansas also lacks complete data regarding construction and renovation needs.

We recognize that investments in physical infrastructure will ensure all children have access to safe, stable, and nurturing environments where high-quality services can be equitably delivered. We envision environments where every child can thrive.
