Integrating Early Learning Activities with State Systems

By Donna DiMichele | July 29, 2014

BUILDing Partnerships for Supportive Communities: Expanding the Reach of Early Learning and Development Systems through Libraries and Museums

Join the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the BUILD Initiative for an informative webinar about the ways that libraries and museums can integrate early learning activities with ongoing state systems on August 4, 2:00 P.M. Eastern.

The early learning and development systems of many states are making exciting progress to meet the needs of young children and their families. Many of these efforts have not included museums and libraries within the core of early childhood systems work.

Date: Mon, Aug 4, 2014

Time: 2:00-3:30 p.m. EDT

For more information and to register
BUILD and IMLS will collaborate over the coming year to create deliberate connections between the efforts of museums and libraries and those of early childhood systems builders to support the growth and development of children from birth to age eight with an emphasis on children from birth to age five. The August 4 webinar is the third in a series of webinars to share information about the potential benefits of partnerships between early childhood leaders and museums and libraries.

Sherri Killins, BUILD’s Director of State System Alignment and Integration, will moderate and lead a conversation about the scope, roles, and functions of state early learning and development systems. She will be joined by Char Goodreau, QRIS Administrator for the Washington State Department of Early Learning, to discuss how state early childhood leaders can strengthen the work of museums and libraries in intentionally supporting the growth and development of young children with high needs and their families and caregivers.
