A new analysis commissioned by the Bainum Family Foundation and conducted by Reinvestment Fund provides the first comprehensive look at what the District of Columbia has, and what it lacks, in terms of early learning capacity and quality — and which parts of the community are most affected by existing gaps.
This information — especially when considered with other local data, such as Early Development Instrument (EDI) outcomes for District children — is designed to help policymakers, funders, providers and advocates make data-informed decisions about where resources and interventions are needed most. It also can help parents understand local early learning options and make the best decisions for their families.
