Preschool Development Grant

Needs Assessment

Nebraska will conduct a comprehensive analysis of existing information to document the availability of quality early childhood services for vulnerable and underserved populations, as well as children in rural areas. These efforts will include the largest ever statewide mailed survey campaign and open-forum conversations for parents, providers and other stakeholders in various locations throughout the state.

The Buffett Early Childhood Institute is working with the Bureau of Social Research at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to complete the Needs Assessment. Key activities include gathering and review of existing Needs Assessments, planning documents, data regarding successes and gaps from families, educators and providers, and other community leaders via surveys and focus groups.
