Early Childhood Policy Matters
Connecting and Engaging With Families in Kansas
In this podcast we explore “Our Tomorrows,” an innovative story-gathering tool being used to connect and engage with families in Kansas.
Host Mandy Reeve (SRI Education) speaks with two state leaders about the program, how it was influenced by the PDG B-5 initiative, and how it is being used to serve children, families, and communities across the state. Guests include Melissa Rooker, Executive Director of the Kansas Children's Cabinet and Trust Fund; and Sara Gardner, Assistant Director of the Center for Public Partnerships and Research at the University of Kansas.
Early Childhood Policy Matters is supported by the National Technical Assistance Center for Preschool Development Grants Birth through Five, funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Care.
