Virtual Office Hours

Early Learning Nation Virtual Office Hours

Do you want your community to start prioritizing early childhood but aren’t sure how to get started? Are you trying to build an early childhood coalition but need some concrete advice on how to bring partners to the table? Are the programs that serve young children and families in your community fragmented and siloed and you want some strategies for better coordination?

Join us for our Early Learning Nation Virtual Office Hours to brainstorm answers to these questions and more with the NLC Early Childhood Success Team and your peers from cities, towns and villages across the nation. Early childhood systems building is hard work, but you don’t have to do it alone. These virtual office hours are a chance to connect and learn more about some promising practices and receive insight on strategies that might work in your own community. Feel free to drop in using the button below during any of our office hours. If you have any questions email the NLC Early Childhood Success Team at

As the Coronavirus pandemic spreads, federal, state, and local agencies have been called upon to be flexible and adapt existing policies to better meet the needs of children and families. In this webinar, we will explore how child care subsidy policies are being amended during this crisis in order to address the needs of essential workers, support the financial viability of the child care industry and ensure that early care and education providers can continue to provide high-quality care to young children in a safe environment. Please join NLC along with our national, state, and local partners as we track from the federal to the state, to the local level how Child Care Development Block Grant funding is being used during COVID-19, how state agencies have amended their programs in light of the crisis, and the impact of these changes locally for providers and families.
