Community Data Group
Mothercraft's Community Data Group works with community agencies to strengthen their capacity for data management. This is accomplished through the development and administration of innovative tools such as the Children and Youth Services Information System (CYSIS).
The Group is known for its expertise in community development, data management, collaborative planning and training that meets community service data collection and reporting needs.
The Group also assisted community agencies in the use of data sets for the purposes of research and evaluation. This included leadership and training to support data collection at Ontario Early Years Centres, the development of the Toronto Mapping and Planning Tool (TMPTool) and the coordination, analysis and dissemination of the Early Development Instrument (EDI) results on Toronto's children.
