  • Principles are shared between ECCS, Head Start Collaboration Office, and Best Beginnings/MIECHV ID.Refer to Best Beginnings table.
  • Community in a broader sense.
  • Roles: fiscal agents – who controls the money: governance structure – coordinator’s role, who supervises the coordinator, how does that work when they are responsive to the council; how does the state BBAC relate to local councils; can they impose requirements; how do the local councils ask for BBAC to work on issues
  • Stevenson and SonsDiscussion with FB
  • The system should change to support the interventions and meet the needs.
  • Thank you, Dianna and Debbie for sharing about the important front end work that must be done to ensure that the changes you make will be sustained over time.
  • 12:35 Pacific / 1:35 Mountain / 2:35 Central / 3:35 Eastern (15 minutes)Production Notes: Give Sheryl Mouse/Keyboard ControlI will now turn the floor over to Sheryl Peavey who will speak to the work being done in Maine to integrate home visiting and ECCS.

  • ECCS grant started as planning grants. Does not mean that there were not already planning efforts and strategies implemented to improve EC. There were, and they were making progress, but typically it was within the silo of their EC domain. SC planning organized around a Leadership Planning Team, and 4 groups shaped by the ECCS key components. Like many states, SC combined the Parenting and Family Support components because of there strong overlap in services and mission,
  • What kind of group is helpful while looking at building a better system?
  • The SC ECCS Leadership team is a great connecting point – like the center of the ECCS flower – for thinking, planning, learning, sharing around the aspects of our early childhood system.
  • Representatives come from these areas – core as well as open to others to come and go – depending on the structure of each meeting. Children’s Trust (MIECHV) has been a long standing member and hosted the planning group for Parenting and Familiy Support for over two years. These planning meetings started our discussions around forming a cross sector early childhood professional development system.
  • Many ideas are crafted for multiple years of discussion and experimentation. With the MIECHV grant came the funding that could support the infrastructure building. Will turn this over to Eric
  • 1:15 Pacific / 2:15 Mountain / 3:15 Central / 4:15 Eastern (10 minutes)Many thanks to all of our presenters. Your experiences are illuminating and help put wheels on the integration of home visiting systems with early childhood comprehensive systems.Throughout the webinar questions have been posted to chat and the Question and Answer box. We have a little time to address some of those questions and perhaps some new questions you’d like to post now. If we are unable to get to some of the questions, we will follow up with you…or you may follow-up with any of the presenters. Contact information for each of the presenters will be on the final slide.
  • 1:25 Pacific / 2:25 Mountain / 3:25 Central / 4:25 Eastern (5 minutes)Before we end, we’d like to leave you with some examples of concrete steps state leaders can take to facilitate the integration of these systems…on behalf and in support of our children and their families.As our colleagues Eric and Rosemary, from South Carolina, demonstrated that it is important to be intentional about building and cultivating personal relationships with collaborators and prospective collaborators. Our colleague Sheryl, from Maine, emphasized the need to find and show how the home visiting program actually contributes to the whole system of early care and education in several concrete ways. And our colleagues from Montana suggest that a critical step is to seek out leadership in related arenas and garner their understanding and commitment to the integration of home visiting systems with early childhood comprehensive systems.
  • Take a moment to scan these goals and note to yourself how each of them have been met by the webinar. You may also want to jot down where you need to follow-up to enhance your learning from today.
  • Our presenters who have generously given of their time to share their stories with us are also making themselves available to us as we continue to work on integrating these systems. We’d like to thank each of you Dianna, Debora, Sheryl, Rosemary and Eric for sharing your experiences with us, and Dena for representing HRSA and sharing background on this topic. As a reminder, participants will be sent a copy of the PowerPoint slides in the near future via email.
  • For an archived copy of this webinar please visit the MIECHV TACC website. The archived copies of this webinar will be available as soon as all materials have been processed to meet 508 compliance quality assurance standards.Thanks for attending and have a great day!
