ARCHS Awards $685,280 to United 4 Children to Enhance Early Childhood Programming


ARCHS has awarded $685,280 in funding to United 4 Children to provide Educare and Infant Toddler Specialist Network (ITSN) services. Funding will collectively support 120 regional childcare programs, including 190 staff trainings, and 1,500 quality improvement site visits.

“ARCHS has partnered with United 4 Children for several years to provide youth development and out-of-school time programs. We are excited about expanding this partnership with an intensive focus on vital early childhood programs serving under-resourced families,” says ARCHS’ Chief Executive Officer Wendell E. Kimbrough. 

“We are honored to partner with ARCHS in our shared vision for Missouri’s children to be given every opportunity to be safe, healthy, and to thrive in high quality learning settings from birth and beyond,” says United 4 Children Executive Director Deanna Finch.  

The Educare program supports, educates, and provides resources that improve the quality of childcare and early learning programs which serve children receiving state childcare subsidies. The program’s goal is to ensure that all childcare and early learning programs have the knowledge and support needed to provide developmentally appropriate practices and to implement early childhood programming that supports children’s development.  

Educare services are available to family childcare programs that serve at least one child receiving childcare subsidy assistance from the state. This includes registered but unlicensed family childcare providers, licensed family childcare providers, and licensed family childcare providers operating in a group home setting. 

ITSN’s goal is to improve the quality of infant and toddler care. The program provides free support to childcare providers, including assessment of infant and toddler classrooms, on-site consultations, materials, and targeted trainings. ITSN helps childcare centers or providers who are licensed or license-exempt, care for children ages 0-36 months, and care for at least one child receiving a state childcare subsidy. 

ARCHS funding for Educare and ITSN is provided by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Office of Childhood.

2021 KIDS COUNT Data Book Now Available

The Annie E. Casey Foundation ranks Missouri as 30th out of 50 states for child well-being. The 2021 KIDS COUNT Data book reveals the status of Missouri's children before the pandemic took hold. In 2019, fewer Missouri children lived in households with incomes below the federal poverty line than at any point in the prior decade. During the years of recovery from the Great Recession in 2008, the number of Missouri's kids who lived in poverty fell to less than one in five, according to this year's data.  

The Data Book released June 2021 shows nearly a decade of progress that could be erased by the COVID-19 pandemic in next year's report. Policymakers must act with kids' best interest in mind to recover from schools and businesses being shut down. 

"In Missouri, we have seen firsthand the great challenges the pandemic unleashed on communities in our state. We are fortunate to have our network of 20 Community Partnerships who were nimble enough to pivot to meet the ever-changing needs of children and families during this time of crisis," says Bill Dent, executive director of the Family and Community Trust (FACT). 

Each year, the KIDS COUNT Data Book tracks 16 indicators measuring childrens' economic well-being, education, health, and family and community access. Missouri improved in several areas, such as on-time high school graduation rates, ranking sixth in the country.
