Data & Policy

Program Description

If used strategically, data can be an invaluable tool in helping to shape an effective and efficient early childhood system. VECF is committed to making sure the Commonwealth’s early childhood data systems are able to guide and support the broader system, and that research across the state is being coordinated and connected in ways that lead to a meaningful impact on children’s school readiness. VECF also works to ensure that the Commonwealth’s policymakers have access to the information they need to make policy decisions that support a healthy and effective early childhood sector. This includes access to local and national research, best practices from other states, and on-the-ground experiences of stakeholders.
