NCSL is pleased to announce the ninth class of its Early Childhood Fellows Program for state legislators and legislative staff.
Since 2011, the program has been educating and supporting legislators and staff with an interest in early care and education. The program is geared toward those chairing or serving on human services, education or appropriation committees who want to expand their knowledge and learn from other legislators, leading experts from across the country and NCSL staff. Sessions cover early brain development; access to affordable, high-quality child care and voluntary home visiting; family economic security; systems design and governance; financing strategies; workforce training and support; and much more.
Graduates of the program become part of an alumni community of nearly 250 members throughout the country. Alumni have exclusive access to continued learning opportunities provided by NCSL.
The program is made possible through a grant from the Alliance for Early Success.
Below is information about the ninth cohort (2021) of Early Childhood Fellows.
