Vermont’s Child Care and Early Childhood Education Systems Analysis

Vermont’s Child Care and Early Childhood Education Systems Analysis (ECSA) is now underway!  The ECSA is required by H. 171 (An Act relating to child care systems and financing), which was signed by Governor Scott on June 1, 2021.  Building Bright Futures has contracted with Foresight Law + Policy and Watershed Advisors to conduct the ECSA.  The goal of the ECSA is to examine systems that govern and administer childcare and early childhood education and use this information to make recommendations for Vermont’s approaches to improve functionality of services and systems that will promote optimal outcomes for children and families.

In late 2021 and early 2022, the Foresight/Watershed team will be holding discussions with Vermont early childhood early childhood stakeholders.  If you would like to speak with them and they have not already contacted you, or if  you would like to submit written comments, please do so here.

In early 2022 the Foresight/Watershed team will begin sharing preliminary findings, and soliciting stakeholder feedback on those preliminary findings.  If you would like to be kept up to date on opportunities to engage in the process, please let us know here.
