Early childhood is ground zero in the quest to strengthen public education. Yet the foundation is still not stable. The early care and education ecosystem needs loving attention - from all sectors and stakeholders, including early childhood professionals, who must be actively engaged in shaping policy. This interactive session will focus on the critical need for ecological systems-based models that link educators, families, and communities in fostering academic achievement. Join a conversation with a veteran thought leader and strategize together on collective impact for children.
