State seeks input on early childhood learning

State officials are seeking input from Kansans to help shape the future of early childhood education.

Community engagement meetings are being held throughout the state as part of an effort to develop a comprehensive assessment of what is needed for early childhood in Kansas and plan a strategy to meet those needs.

The one-hour sessions will focus on what is happening in the community to support parents, caregivers, infants, toddlers, young children and families. The event is open to anyone interested in the future of Kansas children and families.

The May meetings are as follows:

May 7 – Syracuse
May 8 – Oakley
May 8 – Goodland
May 9 – Ness City
May 13 – Great Bend
May 15 – Osborne
May 21 – Junction City
May 21 – Overland Park
May 22 – Concordia
May 23 – Marysville

The Kansas Children’s Cabinet and Trust Fund, Kansas Department for Children and Families, Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the Kansas State Department of Education are partnering to carry out the plan. For more information, please visit
