The “Thrive by Five” study explored the early childhood landscape in Onondaga County to assess the concerns and challenges, and consider how we might more effectively deploy our existing resources toward the goal that all children enter school ready to learn. The Study Committee concluded that we must shift our focus to the earliest years as the optimal time to invest in young children and their families to improve health, well-being and academic outcomes throughout the lifespan.
