This dynamic afternoon will foster dialogue among practitioners, policy makers, and funders around the challenges and opportunities in scaling innovative models in early childhood. The Summit will feature 15 of the most innovative organizations in America working in the areas of instructional leadership, curriculum, and assessment for early education and care providers. 

Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn more about EEC and New Profit’s Early Childhood Support Organization Initiative—a $20M public-private partnership that is making a “big bet” that providing targeted support to local ECE providers in these areas will lead to better child outcome gains for participating child care providers and Head Start programs.
