Early Learning Leadership Brunch

State of Children & Families

An annual gathering of stakeholders to share the stories of children and families in our region and increase investment in early learning

Recently, the Washington State Department of Early Learning set a goal that 90% of children will be “school ready” by 2020, regardless of race or socio-economic background.  This ambitious goal highlights the significance of early experiences for children and how those experiences contribute to their healthy growth and development.  It also underscores the importance of healthy families, flourishing communities, and strong local partnerships working together to realize success for all children.  


Please join Northwest Early Learning and community stakeholders from across the region to consider how current research and local data can inform policy, practice and community norms to strengthen outcomes for children and families.
