Early Childhood Study

During the 63rd legislative Assembly, Senate Bill 2229 was passed and states the superintendent of public instruction shall study the development, delivery, and administration of comprehensive early childhood care and early childhood education in this state. The study must include an examination of the availability, quality, and cost of service offered by existing public and private sector providers, the projected need for services during the coming ten to twenty years, and the ability of public and private sector providers to address the expansion of facilities or the creation of additional facilities. Numerous state departments and local agencies statewide have voiced their support of early care and education programs, projects, and initiatives. A committee representing child care, Head Start, higher education, public and private education, special education, advocacy groups, and North Dakota state departments is developed to carry out this work.
