Event description

Description

Early Childhood Iowa is hosting a summit to engage partners that are involved in local and state-level early childhood system work, as well as, business and economic leaders, civic and faith leaders, education leaders, law enforcement and policymakers. The summit focuses on two main areas:

  1. How young children’s experiences with caregivers impact brain development (i.e., brains are built, not born) and future outcomes in lifelong health, academic and economic success based on over 20 years of research and data, and

  2. How child care impacts Iowa communities and businesses by increasing the number of available employees that are qualified, productive, reliable and committed to stay with the company.

When registering for the Summit, select one of the following tracks:

  • Early Care, Health and Education Track

  • Business and Economic Leader Track (includes businesses, chambers of commerce, economic development, foundations, etc.)

You may also registered for the Early Childhood Iowa 20th Anniversary Evening Celebration which is separate from the Summit.
