The strategic plan for Missouri’s childhood system: A strategic vision & roadmap to 2026


This strategy outlines the Office of Childhood's (OOC) plan for the next three years as it seeks to achieve Missouri’s vision for early childhood. It is organized around OOC’s four Big Goals, embedded within each goal are objectives and strategies. Objectives represent OOC’s major focus areas within each Big Goal, and the strategies within each objective articulate OOC’s approach to achieving these aims. To ensure that progress toward these goals is measurable, this plan also includes 2023 action items which OOC plans to accomplish in the next year and quantitative targets. Additional context is included in each section to provide background and an overview of the current state, as measured by available data in fall 2022. While OOC’s goals are ambitious and will lead to positive impacts on children and families across the state, fully realizing the state’s vision for early childhood will require time and likely additional investments in early childhood at all levels of the system (i.e., local, state, federal).
