Vision: ECDRS will be an integrated online toolbox that equips Vermonters to leverage meaningful data
for the well-being of children, families and communities.
This ECDRS Working Prototype, (or functional model), was developed to demonstrate that an integrated online
system with meaningful data acquired from multiple sources (national, state and local) can be harnessed
(data pushed out to other systems and pulled in from other systems) using a variety of tools
(e.g., visualizations, reports, and stories) by a diverse group of end users to advance the well-being of Vermont’s
children. For the ECDRS Working Prototype we used the policy question “Is the quality of regulated child care and
education programs improving?” and furnished it with visuals and supporting socio-demographic data.
