Project Vision

Nevada’s statewide data system leads to a shared understanding of school readiness. Everyone who touches children’s lives will have a broad awareness of the strengths, needs and status of Nevada’s children; and information that improves children’s development and learning.

 At the end of the implementation, we will have an assessment and data system that helps us answer the following for Nevada’s Early Childhood Care and Education System:

1. Are children, birth to age 5, on track to succeed when they enter school and beyond?

2. Which children have access to high-quality early care and education programs?

3. Is the quality of programs improving?

4. What are the characteristics of effective programs?

5. How prepared is the ECE workforce to provide effective education and care for all children?

6. What policies and investments lead to a skilled and stable early care and education workforce?
