Early Childhood Learning Conference
The 2015 conference’s goal was to facilitate a nonpartisan dialogue that engaged many voices on the subject of early learning opportunities, whether children are cared for at home or in another setting. Ultimately, this conversation was aimed at identifying guiding principles for an Idaho approach to increasing the share of young children who enter school ready to learn.
