Child Care Aware®of America is embarking on a five-month campaign to help shape the ongoing national conversation around various opportunities that enrich the state of child care and early education in this country. The Raise Your Hand webinar series strives to raise awareness about federal and state early learning opportunities that support child care, connect participants with content experts, and inspire all who care about early learning to take action to better the lives of working families.
With all of the excitement surrounding early childhood policy building significantly over the last year, our goal is to make sure that you have access to experts across the early childhood community to discover what exactly is going on in Washington, DC and how you can be involved. To do this, we’ve invited leaders from national early childhood organizations, such as the First Five Years Fund, National Head Start Association, National Women’s Law Center, ZERO TO THREE and many more, to help all of our communities understand what’s possible and what’s at stake for our nation’s littlest learners.
Each 45-minute presentation will inspire parents, professionals and members of the community to RAISE their hand in support of a strong start for children. Subject matter experts will present on topics including the:
- Federal Budget
- Early Learning Polling
- Head Start/Early Head Start and Child Care Partnerships
- Affordable Care Act
- Shared services
- Home Visiting
- Universal Pre-K
- And more
Join us today for the first webinar of our Raise Your Hand series, “Federal Budget 101: Budgets, Deficits, Sequestration and Shutdowns”, with Stephanie Monroe our policy and budget expert at Child Care Aware® of America.
