Discovering Opportunities for Birth to Three

We assessed the current coverage, shortcomings, and opportunities for education support of 0-3 year olds (BT3) in Clinton, Franklin, and Essex Counties of northern New York State.

Our task:

To perform an analysis of BT3 programs using a standardized assessment protocol followed by a program analysis of provider services. Our final products consisted of a written synopsis of programs and providers in Clinton, Essex, and Franklin Counties, analysis of results, and a presentation.

Why is was needed:

This analysis provided information on program effectiveness and shortcomings as well as areas of potential improvement and/or expansion. In September, 2014 we were asked to complete Phase II, which consisted of making recommendations for system enhancements. We have produced two publications of this work. Please contact us or Adirondack Foundation to request copies.

What we discovered:

matrixWe discovered a great network of service providers in all three counties. Together, these programs, businesses, and agencies provide much-needed support for our youngest community members.
