An Illustrative Example If desired result is that we want early development needs to be met for children 0 to 5… • First, identify a population outcome that needs to be improved. • For instance: children being ready to enter school • Next, look at any available data. From what is available, select an indicator to try to improve.

Let’s say we use the number of children entering kindergarten who do not exhibit

Let’s say we use the number of children entering kindergarten who do not exhibit school readiness. From this we would create our baseline graph – showing numbers of children over the last several years and our extrapolation of what that number would continue to be if no new actions are taken.

Next, analyze this issue. What are the contributing factors and root causes?

Next, analyze this issue. What are the contributing factors and root causes?

Let’s say that after our analysis, we decide that a main reason for children

Let’s say that after our analysis, we decide that a main reason for children not being ready for kindergarten is that they could use some sort of preschool experience. Now this issue is analyzed: • Why aren’t all children having a preschool experience? • Is it an issue of access – cost too high, transportation not available, not enough seats available? • Is it an issue of knowledge – families aren’t informed of their options? Or know why preschool might be important? • Is it an issue of quality – families not satisfied with the options available? Or preference – families do not enroll children in preschool by choice? • Other reasons?

At this point, preschool providers, individually or in partnership with each other, could decide

At this point, preschool providers, individually or in partnership with each other, could decide to work on one of these reasons that not enough students are experiencing preschool – for instance, a lack of open slots for preschool. At this level, the goals are program outcomes.

At least once a year, the population outcome is revisited and plotted on the baseline chart. If the number is better than the baseline, we have moved towards success. If it has not moved, we have not made progress on our outcome. Graphic from Healthy. Pasadena. org Implementation Strategy Tracker
