Early Childhood Implementation Snapshots
The Early Childhood Implementation (ECI) Snapshots are briefs that highlight helpful resources for early childhood system leaders and other professionals providing implementation support for systems and programs as they implement evidence-based practices to improve child and family outcomes.
Each ECI Snapshot includes:
- a brief introduction to the topic with linked resources or tools,
- a state spotlight describing one state program’s experience and resources they recommend related to the topic, and
- considerations for centering equity.
The highlighted resources are primarily sourced from the Statewide Implementation Guide, which lays out a process for improving child and family outcomes by identifying strengths and development opportunities, building key support structures, implementing evidence-based practices, and sustaining and scaling implementation efforts.
Series 1: Establishing Essential Support Structures
The first series of ECI Snapshots focuses on the four essential support structures for successful implementation. State leaders and others supporting implementation will find useful resources, tools, guidance, state examples, and considerations for centering equity when establishing and improving the essential support structures in their states and programs.
