The State of Wyoming is developing an application to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Preschool Development Grant (PDG) Program:

“The PDG Birth through Five grant seeks to empower State governments to lead the way in leveraging Federal, State and local early care and education investments. States are not to create another early childhood program, but rather help coordinate early childhood programs and services that already exist in the State according to the identified needs of the State. This grant seeks to assist States in helping low-income and disadvantaged children enter Kindergarten prepared and ready to succeed in school and to help improve the transitions from the early care and education setting to elementary school.”

This is an exciting opportunity for Wyoming to examine our early childhood care and education systems and develop a strategic plan for the future. 

Please complete the brief survey below to help inform Wyoming’s application. Your time and input are greatly appreciated.

Please contact for technical assistance.
For the purposes of this application, the term "early childhood care and education programs" is defined as:
  1. A Head Start program or an Early Head Start program, including a migrant or seasonal Head Start and Indian Head Start programs;
  2. A State licensed or regulated child care program; or
  3. A program that serves children from birth through age six that addresses the children’s cognitive (including language, early literacy, and early mathematics), social, emotional, and physical development; and is a state prekindergarten program, a program authorized under section 619 or part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), or a program authorized by a local educational agency (e.g., a school district or charter school)
