Durham County, along with Durham’s Partnership for Children and Child Care Services Association, is hosting an early childhood community forum this Saturday, March 10th from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm (noon) at the Health and Human Services Building, 414 East Main Street. We hope to see many of you there as we give important updates on initiatives for young children and seek input for future efforts.
We will present information on the 100 Counties – Helping Children Thrive Initiative, the Pathways to Grade Level Reading, and recent reports – including the 2017 State of Durham County’s Young Children and the 2017 Pre-K Task Force Report. Many of these reports can be found online here. A significant portion of the morning is reserved for community input and discussions on topics such as trauma informed care, preconception and prenatal health, early child, pre-k expansion, and more.
