The Greater Kansas City Early Care and Education Landscape Study: Final summary report

Given that research shows early care and education (ECE) programs can have an important impact on children's school readiness and later success in life, the Kansas City Early Education Funders Collaborative commissioned a landscape survey to better understand the existing ECE programs within Jackson County, Missouri (Phase 1) and Johnson and Wyandotte Counties, Kansas (Phase 2). Because of the wealth of information contained in each survey report, this summary report represents an effort to provide a synthesis of findings focused on characteristics of Missouri and Kansas programs. The purpose of this report is threefold: (1) to provide background information about relevant national, state, and local policies and conditions that affect the Greater Kansas City ECE landscape; (2) to summarize the pertinent descriptive information and provide a synthesis of findings from the two previous landscape reports within sociodemographic and policy contexts; and (3) to identify gaps in the ECE landscape across the metropolitan region.
