Building Bright Futures (BBF) is a nonprofit working to improve the well-being of young children and families in Vermont. We are Vermont’s early childhood public-private partnership, charged under Vermont Title 33 § Chapter 46 and the Federal Head Start Act (Public Law 110-134) as Vermont’s Early Childhood State Advisory Council (SAC). We are also tasked with ensuring accountability and measuring the success of Vermont’s Early Childhood Action Plan and Vermont’s Act 76, a child care law passed in 2023.

BBF supports accountability through Vermont’s Early Childhood Data & Policy Center, a nonpartisan, independent source of data, research, and publications for policymakers, researchers, and the public.
