The Blueprint

Blueprint for Early Childhood

The Blueprint for Early Childhood is our state’s strategic framework for ensuring that every child thrives.

While the paths to success may vary, our vision of every child thriving and this Blueprint are intended to guide innovative program design, partnership development, sharing of best practices, and tracking toward long-term outcomes for children and families.

Young children, birth to 5, and their families rely on a strong foundation in the Kansas early care and education system. The Blueprint guides decision making system-wide and locally so that every community, every provider, every stakeholder, and every parent can rely on a network of support that promotes healthy development, strong families, and early learning.
