Early Head Start Collaboration in Action

Spring reminds us of growth and this spring is providing us growth of new collaborations through Early Head Start – Child Care Partnerships. In May, the Early Head Start – Child Care Partnership Orientation was held in Chicago. This event brought together Federal Leadership, State Leaders, and local programs representing Head Start/Early Head Start, Child Care, and the newly formed EHS – CC Partnerships. The orientation provided an opportunity for teams to learn together and plan while having the Office of Child Care and the Office of Head Start present to answer questions and serve as a resource. Teams attending described the training as very informative and providing them with a great deal of new information. We would like to congratulate the three programs that won these new awards: Community Action of South Eastern WV, Northern Panhandle Head Start, Raleigh County Community Action, and their 11 Child Care Partners. We wish you great success in this new collaborative journey!
