Collaboration with Principals and Child Care Providers

We are connecting elementary school principals with local child care providers to improve children's success in school!


Child Care Aware of Washington, The WA Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Department of Early Learning are promoting early learning collaborations between elementary schools and child care providers as one way to help ensure that children’s transition into kindergarten is smooth, and provides kids with a great start in school.

In support of the Early Learning Collaboration component of the Washington Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (WaKIDS), Child Care Aware of Washington is providing customized resources and information that aim to increase communications and build connections between kindergarten teachers and child care providers. These services are available at no cost to elementary schools.
