Throughout our history, we have sought to offer programs that fulfill our mission: To support quality child care for Kansas children. Our success in doing so has come from providing services, resources and opportunities that are KDHE approved and developed specifically for Kansas child care professionals. We also benefit from a full-time staff that brings a combined 50+ years of experience in the early education field, as well as a commitment to making a difference in the lives of child care professionals, children and families.

Raising Healthy Infants and Toddlers

As part of a statewide needs assessment of Infant Toddler Services (also known as Part C or tiny-k), the Center for Public Partnerships and Research at the University of Kansas is collecting stories to better understand family and provider experiences with child development. You are being asked to share an anonymous story about a time you felt encouraged or concerned about the child development of a child you are close to or have worked with. Your story will help to inform program improvement and policy to support children and families with development delays. If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact Chris Tilden at ctilden@ku.edu or (785) 864-6699.
