Speakers - Heather Nara from Mesa County Public Health and Stephanie Bivins from Mesa County Partnership for Children and Families
This session will highlight a successful collaboration between early childhood and public health to increase child care, strengthen families, and prevent child maltreatment. Together Child Care 8000, Partnership for Children and Families (PCF), CCCAP and Mesa County Public Health (MCPH) are leading efforts to expand access to early childhood education, improve quality, create business opportunities and support families in Mesa County. Together we support all kinds of child care providers to get them started, maintain compliance, address challenges, improve quality, and expand services. We are embarking on opening an Early Childhood Education Center and an Adult Training Center to more holistically support our child care providers on the Western Slope.
