Webinar on How States Can Support an Early Childhood System

On May 6th, Chapin Hall and the Urban Institute are co-hosting "Building Blocks For Kids: Creating Intervention Systems That Support Young Children's Healthy Development":
Policymakers and funders increasingly recognize what educators and psychologists have long known about the importance of early childhood experiences: interventions that enrich young children's environments can prepare them cognitively and emotionally to achieve in school and become more successful youths and adults.

Speakers will provide concrete examples of developing collaborative and effective partnerships at both the county and state level, discuss the role of research in system building, and describe new funding opportunities for improving early childhood systems available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
