Markers that Matter: Success Indicators in Early Learning and Education

Hallie Preskill, Nathalie Jones, Afi Tengue

This new report developed by FSG with support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, distills a set of 48 early childhood indicators that reflect healthy development of young children. The report also highlights 10 emerging themes, areas that are not sufficiently addressed by existing indicators and where further inquiry is needed.

The measures and the approach provide a useful framework for different organisations to identify what they need to measure to establish success. The example on page 8 allows the contributors to identify themselves, and choose their own measures. This is explained in the example on page 29. It shows how the different groups contribute to shared measurement.

Thank you for your comment. We are pleased to hear that the report resonated with you! Our hope is that this research can help the wide range of early childhood actors to use indicators to further their important work on behalf of young children.

A terrific framework, but would have liked to have seen the next level of detail with crisper expectations for each of the childhood actors, including, especially, the family unit.

Thanks for the feedback, TCB. Your suggestion is a great one, and while we weren't able to do this in our study, we would encourage folks to join this conversation about what role, how, and in what ways, these different actors in a child's life can or should take responsibility for working on these indicators. As we wrote in our report, one effective way is through engaging multiple stakeholders in a community to think through, plan, and implement activities, policies, and structures, that will improve the lives of young children. One of our primary goals in this work was to stimulate exactly this kind of dialogue!
