Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Early Childhood Education.
In order to meet national education goals, priority must be given to nurturing and cultivating the learning potential of young children. No single agency, department, division, or program can meet the multiple, diverse needs of Ohio's families and young children. Through collaboration, the Division of Early Childhood Education hopes to create successful early childhood education and care initiatives. This annual report includes the Division's mission statement, which supports the vision of the Ohio Family and Children First Initiative (OCFC). This initiative emphasizes prevention and intervention, with an administrative focus on streamlining government operations. Sections are (1) "Program Development Activities," covering public school preschool, Head Start, preschool special education, early identification, kindergarten, and school-age child care programs; (2) "Regionalization of Services," including technical assistance and program evaluation activities; (3) "Special Projects," including technical assistance projects, parent and family training projects, research and development projects, and personnel training projects; and (4) "Highlights and Major Accomplishments," including collaborations and connections, along with award recipients. Appendices include biographies, staff directories, advisory committee members, publications, and funding data. (BGC)
