New Directions in Tribal Early Childhood Programs
Bohanon, Kelli
ZERO TO THREE, v36 n3 p26-35 Jan 2016
This article explores the efforts of tribal communities building more coordinated and effective early childhood systems by taking advantage of federal funding opportunities and partnerships. Given a new level of understanding and response from federal agencies regarding the unique nature of tribal communities, efforts are being made to acknowledge the need for adaptability and the importance of cultural and geographical context impacting the development of strong early childhood systems in tribal communities. This article highlights these partnerships and the programs and initiatives involved in them, including specific examples of tribes taking advantage of the opportunity to build more responsive, coordinated, and sustainable systems of care for the young children and families they serve.
