Schools, families, and early learning practitioners (Preschool through 3rd Grade) continue to face change on many fronts. Coordination and collaboration between district-based and community-based early learning providers is becoming more refined and robust. Inclusive practices–including Pyramid Model Practices, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and play-based learning–are expanding. Needs, norms, and priorities are shifting as children, families, and staff continue to be impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Early Learning Summit brings the opportunity to:
  • Collaborate
  • Share ideas
  • Identify needs
  • Plan strategically for the coming school year


This is your opportunity to share your story, hear from others and inform the guidance from the state. The Early Learning Summit will comprise three gatherings.  Each gathering will be two hours.  Team participation is encouraged.

Suggested participants include:

  • District Administrators
  • Teachers – Preschool – 3rd Grade
  • State Leaders
  • Head Start/ECEAP providers
  • Early Learning Directors
  • Specialists and Related Service Providers working in early learning settings

Come, share your voice, and help us prepare to serve our students better!
