We have created a survey to capture your questions, concerns and perspectives on relevant federal public policy priorities. Please take a moment to respond to the survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/EHS-CC_Partnerships_Survey. We ask that you complete the survey by COB Monday, February 17th. This is a quick turn around, but we wanted to survey the field to ensure your voices are heard and the various needs of the child care community are fully represented during this process.
Additionally, the Administration for Children and Families has released a new web page focusing specifically on the Early Head Start-Child Care partnerships.

ACF Releases Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships Web Page
As part of President Obama’s Early Education Plan, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) will support States and communities in expanding high-quality early learning to infants and toddlers through the Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships. Through these partnerships, Early Head Start (EHS) grantees will partner with center-based and family child care providers who agree to meet EHS Program Performance Standards and to provide comprehensive, full-day, full-year, high-quality services to infants and toddlers from low-income families.
ACF has launched an Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships Web page. The launch includes the following resources:
· Read an overview of the Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships Initiative (PowerPoint).
· Learn more about the President’s Early Learning Initiative.
· Learn how to apply for ACF grants.
· Explore resources to develop successful partnerships between EHS grantees and family child care providers.
Please continue to check back with this site regularly, as ACF will update this page with new resources as they are developed.
The Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships Web page is now published:
