Learning Objectives

  • Learn about ways in which early childhood policy can be embedded in and aligned with strategies of poverty reduction and integration, and the ways in which interdepartmental cooperation is important in taking a holistic approach toward child well-being
  • Examine successful approaches in transitioning children and families, particularly those that are hard to reach, from one set of early childhood services to another, and identify strategies for effectively aligning early childhood services with the primary education system
