Current Strategic Plan
The 2017-18 Strategic Plan, adopted by the Commission with public input, provides for a comprehensive system to support early childhood development in Kern County. The focus areas, objectives and results indicators are used as a roadmap to assist in making its vision a reality.
The Strategic Plan [booklet] is a snapshot of effective strategies and measurable outcomes maximizing the resources of Proposition 10. First 5 Kern’s funded programs provide vital early education and wellness services to children prenatal to 5-years old, connections to parent education and health care for families; with the integration of services throughout Kern County, to the maximum extent possible.
The Strategic Plan reflects the First 5 Kern’s desire to affect real change through outcomes for Kern’s youngest children and their families. It addresses the needs of children, as determined by the Commissioners’, to maximize resources and create long-term positive outcomes for Kern County families.
