Fulfilling the Promise of Early Childhood Education in Florida

Steve Barnett and Karin Garver went to Daytona Beach, Florida to present to and meet with the state’s Early Learning Consortium and other early childhood stakeholders to discuss a new vision for Florida’s state preschool program. The presentation highlighted the importance of preschool program quality in delivering strong and lasting child outcomes, and outlined current spending and quality standards for Florida’s Voluntary Pre-K (VPK) program. Consortium members then participated in visioning exercises to explore and prioritize the aspects of quality VPK might achieve with additional resources and support.
