Quality Providers: Act 3 (2012) called for the establishment of the Louisiana Early Childhood Care and Education Network to unify the state’s early childhood education programs. This statewide network is comprised of 65 local early childhood community networks that include every publicly-funded Pre-K, childcare, and Head Start program within the state.
Lead Agencies: Every Early Childhood Community Network has a lead agency that facilitates the coordinated leadership functions for the community. Lead Agencies coordinate local CLASS™ observations for publicly-funded sites, facilitate the coordinated enrollment process, conduct community meetings, and distribute communication from the Department.
Classroom Supports: Early Childhood Community Networks improve family access to high-quality early learning experiences for children and increase support for programs.
Families: By empowering families with choice and raising the bar for all early childhood programs, Louisiana seeks to have every child prepared to enter and succeed in kindergarten.
