Convening to Inform Collective Advocacy

to Help Children Birth to Five Succeed



Fall 2017 Birth to Five Water Cooler Conference

Building on progress in early care and education in California


At Advancement Project California’s two-day conference, we will convene early care and education (ECE) stakeholders from across the state representing preschool, infant/toddler, child care, birth to five, P-16 and higher education, providers, administrators, parents, activists, advocates, philanthropists, and elected officials. Together, we will vet ideas for policy and practice to build cohesion for a state agenda that supports California's children and families.

A few highlights include:

  • Exploring the ECE policy landscape.
  • Supporting the whole child from the start: elevating the developmental, health and learning needs of California’s infants and toddlers and their families.
  • Expanding the discussion of quality to reflect the diverse needs of our youngest learners, including dual language learners.
  • Strengthening ECE policy and advocacy with the voice of community and the lens of racial equity.
  • Building on ECE principles and pedagogy for greater birth-12 alignment that strengthens instructional practices for students beyond preschool.

Advancement Project California

The Water Cooler improves and expands early care and education (ECE) and K-12 education for California’s children by bringing together diverse stakeholders to build consensus for policy solutions that support the needs of children from birth to 12th grade. Through quarterly meetings and an annual conference that draws more than 500 education advocates, the Water Cooler elevates the needs of California’s students to the forefront of policy decisions. By working “stronger together” the Water Cooler continues to nurture relationships between education allies by identifying common interests and providing a space to prevent or resolve potential conflicts and misunderstandings.


The Water Cooler network is hosted by Advancement Project California.
