Polis Institute is conducting a comprehensive research project on Early Childcare and Education in the western part of Orange County Florida. There are nearly 120 providers in this area serving an average of 68 families each. We’ll be surveying administrators, educators, and parents over the next few months to better understand their experiences and perceptions.

We are doing the research on behalf of the West Orange Healthcare District and in partnership with the Early Learning Coalition and Minga Advisors as part of the K-Ready Community Project.

The K-Ready Community Project” is engaging leaders from all sectors to make high-quality early childcare and education a priority and accessible so that all children in Orange County are ready for kindergarten.
