The Family Guides are a companion to the Kentucky Early Childhood Standards, housed in the Governor’s Office of Early Childhood and first developed in ​2003, by a statewide workgroup of representative stakeholders in early care and education. The Standards serve as a framework to assist early care, intervention, and education professionals, administrators, and others in understanding ​what children are able to know and do from birth through four years of age. The Family Guides align directly to the Standards and the best practices of Kentucky Educational Television’s Let’s Learn ​Kentucky.
