Kentucky's System to Enhance Early Development (KY SEED)
Richmond, KY

View Presentation


The purpose of creating our logic model was to have a structure that drives the planning, management, and evaluation of KY SEED’s goals, objectives, and strategies, and to ensure a strong partnership among early childhood stakeholders that will result in successful implementation of the system of care. The logic model process brought early childhood partners together to create a common vision and mission around the early childhood system of care, thereby creating a clear message upon which KY SEED’s initiatives are put into effect. The logic model serves as an evolving framework for all KY SEED planning and implementation efforts. As a statewide initiative, meeting the literacy level of a wide audience was a potential challenge. This challenge was addressed by simplifying the text, providing narration and visual cues, and utilizing symbolic images to depict system complexities.
