Outcome: Norwalk children are ready to learn in kindergarten and reading at grade level by 3rd grade.

The Early Childhood Initiative strives to create an overarching community system for children and families that will launch every young child on a path to success. The Initiative consists of four working groups (Home Visiting, Language & Literacy, Pre-K to K Transition, Early Childhood Health & Development) that are combining the efforts of the early childhood community, using data to promote the value of early interventions, and changing programmatic strategies to address identified needs. The work that supports 3rd grade reading starts long before kindergarten.
