All Kids Thrive is Rochester’s Model for Early Childhood Policies and Practices. All Kids Thrive is a comprehensive approach to early childhood services that emerged from ROC the Future and the Early Childhood Development Initiative.
All Kids Thrive is Rochester’s model for a system of comprehensive, integrated early childhood supports at the scale to fully meet the needs of all children and parents. This system emerged from and extends the work of ROC the Future, the Early Childhood Development Initiative, and Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative.

Rochester’s early childhood work is recognized as exemplary at a national level. Our infrastructure is based on a rich set of different actors and tables. Through these structures, the early childhood community aspires and works to build a system of seamlessly integrated, quality programs at the scale to fully meet the need of supporting children’s development from 0-8:
The Children’s Agenda works for the policy and funding changes that underpin this system.
