The Irrefutable Link Between High-Quality Childcare & Thriving Communities
May 19, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Over the past few years, the Thriving Communities Collaborative (TCC) has examined some of the factors necessary to prevent childhood trauma and build and sustain thriving, resilient communities. So many things are intertwined. You can’t just deal with part of the problem. And so, this month, we’ve chosen to focus on High-Quality Childcare.
Having access to high-quality child care enables parents and families to work, pursue advanced education, experience less stress — so many of the factors that help to prevent childhood trauma and support strong communities. At the May meeting, we’ll, dive into this and review:
- The Evidence Supporting High-Quality Childcare – We will view the 30-minute film from the Raising of America Series, “Are We Crazy About Our Kids” and discuss the implications.
- Where We stand in Baltimore & Maryland – Nancy Pelton, Acting Director of Training and Technical Assistance of the Baltimore City Child Care Resource Center will share information on how we are doing.
- Specific Actions We Can Take to Make a Difference – We’ll talk about specific actions we can take to make a difference.
We hope you’ll join us for this important viewing and discussion:
