Dear community partners and stakeholders,

Sarah Squirrell, Executive Director for Building Bright Futures

I am delighted to be writing you today to introduce myself as your Executive Director of Building Bright Futures. There is no greater honor than to have the opportunity to work in partnership and on behalf of Vermont’s children, families, and state and community partners to continue to advance our early childhood system.

As stewards and stakeholders of data you understand the importance of data, and as an Early Childhood System it is critical that we have the data available to make informed decisions, and to help us answer two key questions:

  • What are the outcomes we are hoping for in our Early Childhood System in Vermont?
  • How will we know when we have achieved them?

Our goal is to turn data into information and information into insight so that we may fully understand both the challenges and opportunities before us. Vermont Insights is a vital tool to raise awareness and visibility of the critical issues affecting our early childhood system, and ensuring that we are making smart decisions and wise investments for Vermont’s children and families.

I look forward to working side by side with you, as we endeavor together to realize a shared vision for our early childhood system in Vermont.

Warm regards,
