Building Bright Futures is committed to Vermont’s vision for the early childhood system: Vermont aspires to realize the promise of each and every Vermont child by ensuring that the early childhood system is an integrated, continuous, comprehensive, high-quality system of services that is equitable, accessible and will improve outcomes for children in the prenatal period to age eight and their families. Our work towards this vision is grounded in integrating and weaving a focus of diversity, equity, and belonging into our personal lives and all of our work. In action, this means:
Updating the Vermont Early Childhood Action Plan (five-year strategic plan) to ensure that Vermont is using an equity lens to inform the work
Developing diversity, equity and inclusion competencies to make institution-level changes
Increasing Vermont’s ability to examine the system of services with an equity lens through the monitoring and integration of early childhood data
Utilizing continuous quality improvement with a child-centered and equity focused lens to evaluate progress and promote accountability in Vermont’s early childhood system
Using the Vermont Early Childhood Fund (VECF) to be accessible and disrupt traditional funder-grantee power dynamics. The fund awards $100K to creatively address community needs to improve the lives of children and families.
