We are pleased to invite you to participate in a webinar on Tuesday, December 20, from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time [ET]) to introduce the new National Center on Tribal Early Childhood Development (NCTECD). NCTECD is funded by the Office of Child Care, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to provide training and technical assistance (T/TA) to assist American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) grantees with the implementation of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014, including the promotion of early childhood (EC) program best practices and effective EC systems in AI/AN communities.
During this webinar, Melody Redbird-Post, the NCTECD Project Director, will provide an overview of NCTECD, its staff, and upcoming T/TA opportunities. There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions and answers. If you would like to participate in the introductory webinar on December 20 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. (ET), please register via this Web link.
NCTECD will also host virtual listening sessions in January 2017. During the listening sessions, we hope to gather your input on T/TA priorities for AI/AN CCDF grantees. Please look for an e-mail invitation in the near future.
We hope that you can join the introductory webinar and upcoming listening sessions, and we look forward to working with all of you on behalf of children and families!
