This year the Birth to Eight Collaborative is replacing the annual State of Early Education and Care report with two research briefs on the impact of COVID-19 on child care in Boston. Join the Boston Opportunity Agenda for the release of the first brief which explores the changes in child care supply from 2017 - March 2020, demand and the impact of the pandemic through September 2020.
The Boston Opportunity Agenda launched a series of conversations for organizations serving children from Birth to Eight years old in Boston. Exploring most recent available data regarding child outcomes in Boston, these conversations center around current efforts that address the needs of young children and potential collective impact efforts to support infants, toddlers, young children and families throughout the city.
Save the date: Our next early education convening is scheduled for January 31, 2020, at 10 a.m., at the Boston Children's Museum. Be sure to register for the Early Ed Convening mailing list for updates and registration information when it becomes available.
We encourage anyone working with children and families to sign up for our mailing list to stay up to date on collaborative meetings and surveys. If you are interested in serving on a committee, please sign up here.
