About the Hawaiʻi Early Childhood State Plan
The five-year plan was facilitated by the Executive Office on Early Learning, and steering committee collaborators from both the public and private sectors statewide. More than 150 additional participants, through islands-wide focus groups and interviews, also spent time reviewing the drafted plan, providing candid feedback, and contributing to the final version to address a unanimous priority to look system-wide, beyond early learning, to consider the whole child. Participants represented a broad spectrum of Hawaiʻi’s community, including parent groups, health professionals, policymakers, early care and education professionals, advocates, philanthropists, higher education, attorneys, and State department personnel. Implementation of the Early Childhood State Plan is dependent upon collective action by public and private partners, fostered by the Early Learning Board. We welcome your involvement in helping to build an early childhood system that will make a difference for our keiki and their families.
