The ECPIHE initiative is a national project working to instantiate a new field of study, Early Childhood Policy (ECP), as an answer to a long withstanding call for serious innovations in ECP realm. The effort will train future ECP leaders to take on the challenging, yet essential, role of advancing coherent policies for young children and their families, nationally and globally. ECPIHE guides its work with an intentional eye towards equity and diversity; by engaging diverse professionals and students, and equipping future ECP leaders with knowledge about and respect for the diverse families that ECP serves.
The ECP Network, https://ecpolicy.org hosts all initiative materials, including sample teaching modules and course syllabi. Join founders of the ECPIHE initiative, Sharon (Lynn) Kagan, EdD, and Kathy Thornburg, PhD, to hear their vision for ECPIHE, the coordinating arms (i.e., the Network, the Centers, and the Alliance), their goals for the project, and how you can be involved!
