Kansas is hard at work developing the next Child Care and Development Fund Plan. The CCDF Plan outlines how Kansas intends to increase access to child care for low-income families​ and enhance the quality of all child care throughout the state.

Every three years, states are required to submit a new CCDF Plan to the Administration for Children and Families, so this is an opportunity to help shape what Kansas early childhood care and education policy and services will look like through 2024.

In addition to getting your input, the Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) is working closely with a wide range of early childhood care and education partners to find new opportunities to align with the All In For Kansas Kids Strategic Plan. DCF is also seeking feedback to help continue addressing COVID-19 pandemic challenges.

To share your thoughts and ideas, please consider reading the working draft of the plan and using this feedback form (note: this same form is also shared below.).

If you’d like more information, please attend one or more public input sessions hosted by the Kansas Children’s Cabinet and Trust Fund and other partners throughout February.

Every voice matters!
