Building Bright Futures’ State Council has released its first comprehensive assessment of how Vermont’s youngest children are fairing entitled, “How Are Vermont’s Young Children? ” This report is based on current data collected across systems and agencies. Building Bright Futures is charged with advising the Governor, General Assembly, and the public on the needs of our youngest children, prenatal to age six, and on how our early care, health and education system can be strengthened to meet these needs for both the children and their families in the context of their communities. The report was released to Governor Shumlin and state legislators on March 14, 2012, which was Early Childhood Day at the Legislature. This is the first in a series of bi-annual reports from the Building Bright Futures Council that will be the framework, and an essential tool, to inform and guide policy design, implementation and resource allocation.
