Washington State Early Learning Plan
Published September 2010

The Washington State Early Learning Plan is our state’s roadmap for building an early learning system. The plan was created with the input of hundreds of Washington residents who told us what was needed to help make sure all children in our state have what they need to succeed in school and life. OSPI, the Department of Early Learning, and Thrive by Five Washington will help lead implementation, but many people and groups will be part of making this plan happen: Parents, providers, early learning coalitions, public health professionals, public libraries, state agencies, child care resource and referral agencies, schools and educational service districts, and more.

Early Learning Plan vision statement: "In Washington state, we work together so that all children start life with a solid foundation for success, based on strong families and a world-class early learning system for all children prenatal through grade 3. Accessible, accountable, and developmentally and culturally appropriate, our system partners with families to ensure that every child is healthy, capable, and confident in school and in life."
