State Support for Local Early Learning Councils. State TA Resources
Early Learning Challenge Technical Assistance
This resource was prepared for a Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge (RTT-ELC) State in response to a request for examples of States that support local Early Learning Councils. Local Early Learning Councils are public-private partnerships that work to align and strengthen a comprehensive early childhood system and to coordinate funding coming into the community from various funding streams. The direct provision of services is not a core function of a local Early Learning Council. Membership generally includes early childhood experts, parents, practitioners, local governments, public school administrators, health/mental health and human services providers, business leaders, advocates, and representatives from philanthropic and faith-based communities. To address this request, Early Learning Challenge Technical Assistance (ELC TA) reviewed the "State Profiles of Successful Public Private Partnerships" website prepared by the Early Childhood Training and Technical Assistance System, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Five States (Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Maryland, and Oregon) were identified as States that support local Early Learning Councils. ELC TA also consulted State web pages for these States for additional information. A description of the varying characteristics of these five local Early Learning Councils includes an overview of the relationship between the State and the local councils, their mission and goals, governance structures, sources of funding, types of activities, and plans for evaluation. The Appendix provides a profile of each initiative.
