2021 Needs Assessment Update

2021 Update

The Kansas early childhood care and education system is entering year three of our All In For Kansas Kids Strategic Plan implementation. Understanding the current needs of both our system and our youngest Kansans and their families is a driving force in that work. This 2021 Needs Assessment Update, covering January to December 2021, reflects our understanding of the current reality for Kansas children and families, the early childhood care and education workforce, and the broader early childhood system.
