Family voice and leadership played a vital role in all aspects of the NH Preschool Development Grant (PDG). PIC and NHFV worked collaboratively with the University of New Hampshire, state leaders, and early childhood care and education programs across the state to elevate the voices of families and inform the needs assessment and strategic plan.
Our organizations also worked with early childhood coalitions, providing them with training, resources, and support needed to engage families in meaningful ways that;
- Strengthened and expanded the Early Childhood capacity of each community.
- Created opportunities for families to have a voice and for those voices to be heard and validated by the professionals working with them.
- Laid the foundation to improve Early Childhood Care and Education systems across the state.
