Notes To explore whether PFS is a viable tool to fund the expansion of three-year-old preschool in the city and county urban ring, city and county leaders should work with a PFS advisory firm to conduct an in-depth feasibility study. One available source that could lead this work is an Institute for Child Success federally funded grant competition that will provide PFS technical assistance. Stated in the application documents, “Headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina, the Institute for Child Success (ICS) is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit research and policy organization dedicated to the success of all young children.” “ICS uses an innovative coaching model, where jurisdictions commit specified staff to the project and are guided through the process of assessing the feasibility of PFS for improving early childhood outcomes.”
