Early Childhood Policy Matters


Using PDG B-5 to Support Comprehensive ECCE Statewide Systems

Ep. 7

How are states using the Preschool Development Grant Birth Through Five (PDG B-5) Initiative to build and grow comprehensive early care and education statewide systems? We look at the work being done to serve children and families in two very different states: California and Georgia.

Host Missy Coffey (SRI Education) sits down with Stephanie Myers, Director of the California Head Start State Collaboration Office with the Childcare and Development Division at the California Department of Social Services; and Bentley Ponder, Deputy Commissioner of Quality Innovations and Partnerships with the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.

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.
