Foundation To Thrive Webinar Series
United 4 Children and the Clark-Fox Policy Institute invite you to learn more about the early childhood education landscape and the impact of quality childcare. Throughout our 2022 Foundation to Thrive Webinar Series, we will discuss the barriers to every child having the foundation to thrive, and how early childhood education plays a key role in building a promising future for our communities. Each webinar will take place via Zoom, from 11 a.m. to noon on a Thursday.
Take a look at our upcoming webinars:
Feb. 17, 2022: What does quality childcare have to do with me? How Quality Childcare's Value Reaches Beyond a Family's Household

April 28, 2022: Are you a business leader? Here's why you should care about ECE.
We will highlight the barriers families face in finding and maintaining quality childcare placements. We’ll discuss possible solutions. Hint: businesses can do a lot to support parents on their team — directly or indirectly.
June 23, 2022: Not a Parent? Here's Why You Should Still Care About Early Childhood Education
We will focus on how having accessible, quality childcare impacts an entire community. More than parents and children are affected by childcare — there is a ripple effect on the community. With that in mind, the entire community should be invested in ensuring children have the foundation to thrive. In short, we’ll answer: if you don’t have a child, why should you care about childcare in your community?

We will discuss on how quality early learning experiences can positively impact a child’s future.
