Early Childhood Institute 2019: Believe in Me KY roundtable discussion in Louisville this week

The Kentucky Governor’s Office of Early Childhood (KYGOEC) will host its annual Early Childhood Institute (ECI) June 19-21.


The goal is to empower early childhood professionals to continue their efforts to impact and shape Kentucky’s children and families.

KYGOEC was recently awarded $10.62 million in federal funding from the Every Student Succeeds Act Preschool Development Grant – Birth through Five.

It was also awarded a one-year $25,000 National Governor’s Association Integrating and Advancing State Prenatal to Age Three Policies Grant, to enhance Kentucky’s innovative efforts in re-visioning the state’s early care and education system.

The Early Childhood Institute will feature a roundtable discussion, moderated by KET’s Renee Shaw, among key early childhood education advocates. The group will discuss Kentucky’s efforts to promote best practices and the development of policy targeting comprehensive services that support the needs of Kentucky families, specifically those of highly vulnerable populations.
