Washington State Birth to Three Plan
In 2010, the Legislature asked DEL to submit a "comprehensive plan to provide education and support through a continuum of options" for infants and toddlers. DEL partnered with Thrive Washington to develop the plan, with assistance from a number of early learning experts around the state. The Washington Birth to Three Plan builds on previous work, aligns to the state Early Learning Plan and recommends actionable policy strategies.
