Durham’s Partnership for Children is always working to ensure that are children ages birth to five and their families are ready to succeed when by the time they enter K-12! Our goal for the initiatives we introduce is to enhance and expand how we can serve the families within Durham County. 2022 will present some very exciting opportunities for parents, families and providers! The Partnership is excited to announce we were awarded North Carolina Partnership for Children’s Preschool Development Grant for Family Engagement and Leadership Planning!
With the vision to put families consistently at the center of the birth to five system, The North Carolina Partnership for Children, Inc. (“NCPC”) is partnering with the Department of Health and Human Services – Division of Child Development and Early Education (“DCDEE”) and other key family-serving state agencies and statewide organizations, to award up to eight planning grants to Smart Start Local Partnerships (“LP’s”) or Community Organizations (“CO’s”). Awardees will convene countywide stakeholders, including family members, to develop an action plan to implement NC’s Family Engagement Framework for the Birth to 5 early care and education system.
Along with this exciting news we will have Family Child Care Homes implemented this upcoming year. These grants will create opportunities for parents and providers. The Partnership is recruiting 5 parents and 5 providers for these opportunities! If the Family Engagement Leadership Planning or Family Child care Homes piques your interest and you would like to be involved email firstname.lastname@example.org !
