Early Childhood Coffee and Conversation


June 26, 2020

9:00 AM - 10:30 AM




Coffee & Conversations is a monthly series that features an in-depth look at the work of our grantees, including emerging lessons. We invite donors, early childhood stakeholders and thought partners to join us in these learning sessions. In 2020, the virtual Coffee & Conversation series will take place on the last Friday of each month, March - June.

Early care and education providers can start to reopen under Phase 2 of the Governor's reopening plan. As providers consider reopening, they need to juggle many considerations. Health and safety is paramount, but there are likely increased financial concerns and unclear parent/caregiver demand, among others. How can we ensure quality early childhood experiences for our young children? Join us as experts share their concerns and considerations for reopening and reimagining an equitable early childhood system. This event will be virtual and recorded for later viewing.
