Join Vision for Children at Risk, in collaboration with the St. Louis Regional Early Childhood Council, Ready by 21 St. Louis and other key community partners, along with the Deaconess Foundation as the lead sponsor, for the St. Louis Metropolitan Early Childhood Summit.

This daylong conference will prepare the St. Louis region to promote and implement a comprehensive, coordinated early childhood development strategy that will advance kindergarten readiness and early childhood success. When the critical early childhood developmental needs of all children are met, our region will prosper with an educated, trained workforce and reduction in the racial inequities which plague the St. Louis region.

All registrants will receive a copy of the 2017 Children of Metropolitan St. Louis report detailing some 40 indicators of child well-being at the ZIP code level across the five core counties of the St. Louis region and illustrating the region’s stark disparities.
