Wyoming Kids First is an early childhood systems building initiative governed by the Wyoming Early Childhood Partnership (WECP). The WECP is a non-profit organization that was formed in 2008 and works exclusively through the Wyoming Kids First initiative. For consistency, the WECP utilizes the Wyoming Kids First nametag for all public relations and activities.
The WECP was created to improve outcomes for Wyoming’s youngest children through the facilitation of collaborative, systemic actions that impact children’s preparation for success in school and in life. The organization was modeled after North Carolina’s Smart Start program and the North Carolina Partnership for Children. The WECP’s approach uses business-like innovation, discipline and adaptability to achieve public-private results for all children.
