Shop and support thread in advancing the quality of early care and education for our children.
Alaska now has access to new resources of robust data detailing the supply and demand of early childhood education statewide.
thread has launched an interactive map and dashboard with statewide and regional information on early childhood education in Alaska. The data, compiled by McDowell Group, examines the affordability and availability of early education as well as school readiness of Alaska’s young children.
Alaska’s Early Care and Learning Data Dashboard shows that, statewide:
The dashboard also presents local data for 29 borough and census areas.
Analyzing the supply and demand of child care and developing policies to ensure all families have access to quality early childhood education is part of every state’s implementation of the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014.
Together, these resources provide an important tool for Alaska’s policymakers, business investors, families, and communities to understand the needs of young children in the state.
