State Resources for Early Learning Guidelines Toolkit


Each state provides early learning guidelines and resources related to early childhood education. This toolkit gathers that information from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, providing easy access for early childhood educators across the nation. Resources for each state include:

  • Child outcomes (the early learning guidelines).
  • Separate adult guidance documents for implementing the early learning guidelines.
  • Multimedia adult guidance for implementing the early learning guidelines — videos, tutorials, toolkits, etc.
  • Crosswalks that align the early learning child outcomes with other child outcome documents (Head Start, Common Core, etc.).
  • Prekindergarten program guidelines.
  • Teacher competency indicators.
  • State provided resource links.
  • The webpage of the office/party that has disseminated the early learning guidelines.

If you have questions or would like to request edits to the toolkit, please contact Maie Lee.
