Florida ECCS has the opportunity to work with ZERO TO THREE, the National Center for Infants, Toddlers and Families, to complete a statewide Early Childhood Policy self-assessment process. This includes a stakeholder survey, as well as a family survey and discussions with state agencies facilitated by the Florida ECCS Policy Workgroup.
We need your help! Please complete this Stakeholder Survey by December 6!
It is designed to find out about particular ways that policies or practices related to early childhood are working really well or are creating significant problems in Florida. It is also intended as a way to find out more about differences in implementation or family experiences across neighborhoods, or across racial and ethnic identities. This will help to address disparities and to bring about equity for all babies, families and communities throughout the state.
The Stakeholder Survey will be circulating throughout Florida over the upcoming month. Then the findings will be compiled and shared publicly through Florida ECCS so that everyone can use them to support ongoing advocacy and changemaking efforts. The goal is to have as many individual stakeholders – and as diverse a range as possible – complete this survey in order to spot patterns throughout the state, and to compare Florida to other states around the country.
If you have any questions or feedback about this survey or process, you are welcome to contact Dr. Allison Pinto (AP@allisonpinto.com; 727.225.9362), who is a consultant with Florida ECCS and overseeing this survey process.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to contribute!
