If you could redesign early care and education in Massachusetts, what would it look like?
- Professional compensation for educators and family child care providers?
- Affordable access for all families?
- Resources that emphasize professional learning and leadership?
- Education and care that addresses racial equity?
Please join us for “Reinventing Child Care in Massachusetts,” a series of three webinars that will facilitate discussion among early care and education providers and other stakeholders about how to make these ideas reality. We will highlight some of the creative and innovative work already underway in Massachusetts, share technologies that streamline business operations and reduce costs, and problem solve strategies for dealing with potential roadblocks to reinventing child care.
We are convening “Reinventing Child Care in Massachusetts” with Northern Essex Community College and Volta Learning Group. Presenters are from Opportunities Exchange, a national leader in developing business strategies that sustain ECE programs and improve child outcomes.
The ideas we will be discussing are derived from Opportunity Exchange’s policy brief “Reinvent vs. Rebuild.” They will address the ways the Covid-19 pandemic is disproportionately affecting ECE businesses, and highlight the ways racial inequities affect ECE providers and the families they serve.
