County to Co-host Early Childhood Community Forum
(Edit 1/19/2018: This event has been postponed due to adverse weather and poor travel conditions resulting from the recent winter storm. A makeup date will be announced in the near future.)
Durham County, along with the Partnership for Children and the Child Care Services Association, is hosting an early childhood community forum on Saturday, January 20th from 9 AM – Noon at the Health and Human Services Building, 414 East Main Street.
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. (http://www.dconc.gov/government/departments-a-e/board-of-commissioners/state-of-durham-county-s-young-children). A significant portion of the morning is reserved for community input.
This is an opportunity for parents, caregivers, and other interested citizens to weigh in and offer guidance as we develop plans to improve early childhood services in Durham County. Please join us!
