There will be an Early Childhood Summit in Iowa this fall to celebrate 20 years of service for supporting young children and their families. The goal is to inform, educate and actively engage all Iowans in the value of the First 2000 days as the most critical stages of the human life-cycle, so that young children are nurtured and supported.
Here is where you come in! We would like to have some testimonies about early childhood services and how they have supported you. Please select one of the following questions to answer. If you would like to answer multiple please record separate videos. Video record (cell phones work perfect) your response and upload the video file to this location or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to include your name and organization with the video.
We are excited to share your experience with the early childhood system at the Summit!
Keep an eye out for the Summit invitation and registration information coming from Early Childhood Iowa.
Thank you for your support,
Early Childhood Iowa Public Engagement Committee
Researchers say 24 percent of Iowa residents live in child care deserts, places where child care is scant. That figure jumped to 37 percent in rural areas.
