The focus of the Early Childhood Network is to provide coordinated training and assistance to teachers and providers for children, birth through preschool. Development during the early years is the foundation for all learning and providers of early childhood programs are challenged to continue to increase their skills and knowledge to provide success for our young learners. Topics of support include inclusive programming, curriculum framework, social-emotional development, and transition as early intervention, early childhood, and early childhood special education personnel provide a foundation for learning and academic success for children as they enter kindergarten.
