Ohio Early Childhood
Preview Now Available!
Published March, 2022
Groundwork Ohio developed the Early Childhood Dashboard Preview as a precursor to a first-of-its-kind, more comprehensive Early Childhood Dashboard to be released in 2023. The comprehensive Dashboard is being created as a tool to advance equity and catalyze advocacy and action needed to lay a strong foundation for Ohio kids (prenatal to age 5), families, and communities. This Dashboard Preview provides a snapshot of Ohio’s performance on 20 key early childhood metrics that examine the factors and outcomes required to ensure young children in Ohio are healthy and ready to learn. The Dashboard Preview also puts data in context by analyzing trends across years, comparing Ohio to the U.S., and highlighting disparities and inequities. The 2023 Dashboard will build on the Dashboard Preview to more fully examine the factors and outcomes required to achieve equity and lay a strong foundation for young children in Ohio.
Over the next year, Groundwork Ohio will gather feedback on the Dashboard Preview to inform development of the 2023 Dashboard. As part of this process, Groundwork will consult with and solicit feedback from early childhood experts, families, community organizations, providers, and other early childhood stakeholders at the local, state, and national levels.
