Is early childhood important to you?
You are invited to participate in a fun and family-friendly early evening event hosted by Alaska’s Early
Childhood Joint Task Force* and Orutsararmiut Native Council, Lower Kuskokwim School District, Yukon
Kuskokwim Health Corporation and RuralCAP. Food, childcare, and a comfortable format will be provided
for parents and families to talk freely about their experiences and offer suggestions to improve early care
and learning programs and options in Bethel.
The purpose of these meetings is to gather ideas and opinions from parents and families. The responses we
receive will help write the new comprehensive, action-oriented, statewide strategic plan for early childhood
in Alaska. This is your opportunity to provide input on this important plan!
*Partners, including the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development, the Alaska Department of Health
and Social Services, Southcentral Foundation and the Association of Alaska School Boards, in partnership with over
10 early childhood organizations and parent representatives have formed the Alaska Early Childhood Joint Task
Force to coordinate work on the new statewide strategic plan for early childhood care and education.
We’re looking forward to seeing you!
