Posted on 11.12.2021, Friday

November 15th – 19th is American Education Week! As Durham County’s convener of Early Education Durham’s Partnership for Children is proud to serve expecting parents and children from birth to five years old. Preparing children and laying the foundation for the educational journey ahead that is K-12!  Our programs and initiatives are intentionally put together to ensure that DPFC is being educationally sound while being culturally responsive to the children and families we serve. We partner with a number of organizations to create resources and a wholistic approach to preparing our children for success. To celebrate American Education Week, we encourage you to learn more about the early education community in Durham County!
