Early Childhood Action Plan (ECAP)

Vermont’s Early Childhood Action Plan (ECAP) is in the process of being updated and will be finalized by December 2020.


Vermont’s Early Childhood Framework, which was finalized in October 2013, lays out six goals to unify Vermonters in our efforts to ensure the wellbeing of Vermont’s young children and their families. The Early Childhood Action Plan provides specific strategies to ensure the six goals of the Framework are realized. Both documents reflect a shared responsibility to provide a good start for all Vermont’s children and a belief that all Vermonters benefit when our youngest citizens and their families are thriving.

The mission of the Early Childhood Action Plan is “to ensure the state’s children grow up happy, healthy and ready for a lifetime of learning”. In order to achieve this, BBF brings together parents, educators, service providers, state agencies, funders, the business community, and other key public and private stakeholders to work together in new ways to realize the promise of every Vermont child.

It can be easy for strategic plans to gather dust on a shelf, but the infrastructure Building Bright Futures has put in place to support and monitor the implementation of Vermont’s Early Childhood Action Plan holds us accountable to meeting our ambitious goals.
