The N.C. Early Childhood Landscape: Findings from the 2022 Needs Assessment
Please join us for a review of key findings from a recently completed statewide birth-to-five early childhood needs assessment. The needs assessment was developed by the Duke Center for Child and Family Policy and The Hunt Institute on behalf of the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education.
The needs assessment was designed to provide state leaders with a greater understanding of the current strengths and challenges within North Carolina's early childhood system. The needs assessment process incorporated diverse perspectives from across the state, including parents, childcare providers, advocates and state-level leaders, as well as an examination of available administrative data.
This webinar will share key findings from the needs assessment report across a number of topic areas, including the early childhood workforce, access to high-quality child care, school readiness, social-emotional health/resilience and family supports.
