Early Edge’s priority is to ensure that the early childhood workforce has the knowledge and skills necessary to provide high-quality, developmentally appropriate care and instruction to our state’s youngest residents. Our focus is on improving the preparation, support, and compensation for the workforce and building its capacity to support children’s dual-language development.
