From Insight to Action: Pierce County State of the Children

Since 2019, Washington STEM has heard from our partners that while much of their work engaging historically underserved students had been successful, access and opportunity to high-quality early learning experiences remained a serious issue.

In this roundtable discussion, we call on you to support efforts to learn and reflect stories and data from families, providers, and communities about their needs and strengths, and to ensure that we collect and analyze data with communities. Participants will explore, discuss, and provide feedback on the pressing issues around the early learning care system from the local perspective.

Participants will also be able to locate and utilize some of the existing tools to explore hyper-local data tools such as the Washington STEM State of the Children report and the Department of Children, Youth, and Families’ early learning dashboards.
