The Intersection Webinar: Building Better Early Childhood Systems through Public/Private Collaboration
Pathways to Grade-Level Reading, NC Early Childhood Action Plan, Every Student Succeeds Act, Preschool Development Grant, Early Childhood Advisory Council, B-3rd Interagency Council, Think Babies, Leandro. There is so much incredible action on early childhood on the state level in North Carolina. Good news: all these initiatives are connected and moving forward together!
Mandy Ableidinger of NCECF and our close partner Becki Planchard, Senior Early Childhood Advisor at the NC Department of Health and Human Services, were featured on the Hunt Institute’s national Intersection Webinar to share about the state-level public/private collaboration that is going on right now in North Carolina around early childhood issues.
Mandy and Becki highlighted the value of collaboration between state agencies and the public in strengthening the creation of the North Carolina Early Childhood Action Plan, which was grounded in the work of the NC Pathways to Grade-Level Reading Initiative, led by NCECF. They discussed how they integrated the public into the development process and provided an overview of the Early Childhood Action Plan.
