An Official Website of the Commonwealth of Kentucky
Early childhood development and education outcomes affect everyone in Kentucky, including at-risk families, children with special needs, working parents and businesses that rely on dependable employees. From First Steps and Head Start to after-school programs, early childhood services remain an ongoing need in our state. Join me as I discuss this important issue with Sarah Taylor Vanover, EdD, director of the division of child care at DCBS. Dr. Vanover began her career as a daycare infant room assistant and went on to work in preschool, public school and Head Start in support and management roles. She brings her vast knowledge and experience to the Cabinet as an accomplished leader, author, parent and advocate for children across the commonwealth.
