The Partnership for Early Success is committed to providing Kansas children from birth to age 8 the best possible start in life through access to diverse, high-quality early care and education, health and family support services.

History of the Partnership for Early Success

The Partnership for Early Success was launched in 2014 to provide a grassroots voice for young children in Kansas. The Partnership developed as an extension of the Kansas Coalition for School Readiness, an earlier effort more narrowly focused on early care and education issues for children birth to age 5. The broader focus of the Partnership acknowledges the influence of health and family support as well as the importance of the early elementary school years in the continuum of early childhood development.
