Where We’re Going

Get Involved Today! 

There are many opportunities for you to share your experiences and help shape the future direction of early care and education in Kansas. We’d love to hear from you.



Provide Feedback

Join us by answering a few questions based on the information Kansans told us they wanted for their early childhood care and education system. Together we can ensure the best start in life for all Kansas kids.

Make a Change

Community Action Labs are an opportunity to act on the patterns and themes uncovered by the experiences shared through this effort and the Our Tomorrows SenseMaker® tool.

Learn more about the 2019 awarded actionables to see what is happening throughout our state and get ideas for your community.

Tell a Story

By sharing stories of the challenges and bright spots families experience with a tool called SenseMaker, we will gain a rich understanding of what family resilience looks like in our state.

Each story becomes part of a collective, statewide map of community strengths and needs. Click here to learn more about the Our Tomorrows Project.

Attend a Webinar

We host webinars every other Wednesday at 12PM to inform and connect early childhood stakeholders across the state to this effort.  Participants are asked to register in advance (name and email) to ensure appropriate follow-up.
