Get kids started on the right foot

Early Care and Education

When we can get kids off to a good start, it allows them to build up a head of steam so that successes later in life can come easier. This is accomplished by focusing on parents having access to quality childcare, engaging parents and caregivers community wide, and getting preschoolers ready to win at kindergarten.

Kids grow best in nurturing environments

We can prepare kids for success just by providing the tools, knowledge, and resources for families to create environments for their kids to thrive. Learn more and see if it's something you can get behind.

Greater Louisville Project Competitive Cities Report:

Early Childhood

The first five years of a child’s life provide the building blocks for lifelong learning and health. While Louisville has a large ecosystem of individuals, businesses, and organizations that support early childhood development, many families across Louisville face barriers to accessing those resources.

This report analyzes one way to evaluate early childhood development—kindergarten readiness—as well as several factors that impact it: the price and availability of child care, adverse childhood experiences, and food security.
