CandL Data Launch

Voiced by Amazon Polly

To ensure that the voices and needs of parents, teachers, and providers are heard in conversations about early care and education, we conducted a listening tour of focus groups among these stakeholders across the state. The goal of the listening tour was to listen to and more fully understand the wants, needs, and dreams of families and providers.

We are committed to working with families and communities to engage their strengths and address their values as we reimagine and rebuild early care and education in North Carolina for all children, regardless of zip code.

Care and Learning (CandL) has prioritized listening to families, providers, and communities with the plan of building an inclusive and equitable vision. Phase 1 – focused on data collection and intense family and community engagement – is complete now. 

The data is in and we want you to to hear the collection of insights which resulted from 34 listening sessions, including pilot sessions, which were held across 34 NC counties. We’re hosting a virtual meeting, in partnership with The Link Group, to share it with you. 

What: CandL Data Launch Webinar on Early Care and Education
