(Not) Our Final Destination
Our final strategic plan was submitted to and approved by the CDE in spring and early summer 2012. We began implementation on 7/1/2012 and will continue until 6/31/2015, revising each year as necessary. The state instructed us to write goals that would describe the state of our early childhood system at the end of the plan implementation. These goals represent only a portion of our efforts at building an effective early childhood system.

GOAL 1: PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Early care and education providers have the knowledge, skills, competencies, and experience in the field to be successful in their jobs.
GOAL 2: NUTRITION AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Families have access to and use information and resources about the importance of good nutrition and developmentally appropriate physical activity for healthy development and academic success from conception through age 5 and beyond.
GOAL 3: TRANSITION
Children have the necessary transition experiences from pre-K settings to kindergarten to enable them to enter school with the pre-academic and social skills needed for success.
