Improving School Readiness Outcomes: Lessons from Six Communities
Annie E. Casey Foundation
This report describes six local government efforts to develop early learning systems to achieve the goal of school readiness--efforts that use federal and state resources but are locally owned. These efforts were identified and selected based upon discussions with a number of early childhood experts in the field. They represent some of the most sophisticated and comprehensive efforts in the nation to focus attention on achieving school readiness and to create early learning systems that encompass health, early intervention, child care, enriched preschool, and parenting support strategies. Site visits were conducted in May, June, and July of 2003, interviewing key stakeholders and visiting exemplary programs. Circumstances may have changed in these models since the site visits were conducted.
