Building NH's Early Childhood Structure
 

NH's Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Education, and Preschool Development Grant invite stakeholders to participate in a process that will inform the development of NH’s Network of Coordinated Regional Partnerships in Early Care and Education, Supporting Family Strengthening and Well-being. Insights from community partners, advocates, family members, and child and/or family serving organizations are essential to the success of this effort to better serve the children and families of the State of New Hampshire.

The first step of this process was an Information Sharing Meeting, March 29, 2021, to share the vision and intent of this initiative, describe the process to gather data and invite stakeholder input, and to answer stakeholder questions. Access the recording of the meeting.

Input from Early Childhood partners regarding efforts to develop a network of well-coordinated regional early childhood partnerships, along with a review of external data, will inform the development of this proposed system. An Invitation for Input Survey collected information from interested community partners, especially those in early childhood, the first half of April 2021.
