Welcome to Kentucky's Preschool Development Planning Survey.  Kentucky's Governor's Office of Early Childhood is conducting this survey to gather input on how best to plan improvements to its early childhood system of services.  We greatly appreciate your feedback--there are no right or wrong answers and this survey collects information anonymously.  The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete.  If you have questions or concerns about this survey, please contact Dr. Sarah Heinemeier of Compass Evaluation and Research at sarahhei@compasseval.com or 877-652-0189.
