Learning Objectives:

During this strategy track, attendees will:

  • Learn more about the Early Care and Education (ECE) strategy area activities recipients have identified in work plans, solidify their knowledge of the Spectrum of Opportunities and learn about best practices for implementing NOFO activities by sharing the best examples seen to date by spectrum area.  
  • Participate in networking, tabletops, facilitated discussions and share strategies/activities.
  • Become familiar with DNPAO internal and external TA Providers. TA providers and TA will be intertwined throughout the sessions and allow opportunities for recipients or groups of recipients (aka speed dating) to meet with them.  We could also do a showcase of TA providers and recipients that have worked with them to broaden and deepen their work. 
  • Deepen their knowledge on key topics such as Farm to ECE, implementation science, physical activity, outdoor learning, and breastfeeding. 
  • Understand the importance and see examples of aligning state and local level work.
