Policy & Community Partnerships

Early learning happens everywhere and is shaped by everyone who comes in contact with a child. To make sure EVERY child gets a great start in life and school, we’re building a community-wide commitment to deliver a comprehensive and responsive high-quality early learning environment that benefits every child and family in our state.
We do this by:

  • Championing and supporting partnerships at all levels and between sectors, so that our state’s early learning efforts meet the diverse requirements of all children and families.
  • Working closely with the Department of Early Learning and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, as well 10 regional early learning coalitions, to implement the state’s 10-year Early Learning Plan.
  • Embracing the richness of the state’s early learning field by engaging in partnerships and alliances that engage constituencies based on specific content areas, such as the Early Learning Public Library Partnership, or represent specific communities, such as the First Peoples, First Steps Alliance.
