Early Childhood Policy Matters


An Introduction to Early Childhood Policy Matters

Ep. 1

Welcome to Early Childhood Policy Matters, a podcast for early childhood professionals and strategic partners hoping to use research to inform policy and better serve children, families, and their communities.

In this series, we'll be talking with state leaders and national experts about early childhood policy and efforts supporting the Preschool Development Grant Birth Through Five (PDG B-5) initiatives happening across the country. We'll share valuable knowledge, strategies, success stories, and some lessons learned on a wide range of critical topics from the local level to the federal level, from mental health practice to program development.

The series, 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, begins with a focus on early childhood mental health. In future episodes we'll focus on topics including the development of strategic partnerships, establishing financing models for mixed delivery systems and coordinating eligibility and enrollment processes across agencies and across states.

Join us for an informative and engaging look at the PDG-B5 initiative, and learn from the nation’s top early childhood professionals and leaders.
