Breakout Session: Community Vitality Factors Beyond Economic Investment Thriving Children's Conference 2021
The critical role that high-quality early childhood education plays in the ability of children, families, and entire communities to thrive is clearer than ever before. Please plan to join us online Sept. 27 for an exciting day of learning, sharing, and inspiration as community leaders from across Nebraska come together to focus on high-quality early childhood education and its connection to economic development and community vitality. This free conference is intended for community leaders, including those in education, economic development, child care, business, government, health care, higher education, and philanthropy. Attendees will learn about key research, program, policy, and outreach aspects of high-quality early childhood education programs and services and their important role in economic development. More than 700 local leaders, representing 100 Nebraska communities and 20 states, registered for this vital conversation at the 2020 conference. During this breakout session listen and hear from folks discuss their knowledge and experience how factors such as mental health, wellbeing, culture, and small business influence community vitality.
