Community Symposium Highlights COFI’s Role in Support Parents and Early Childhood Education

As part of the 2nd Annual Austin Early Learning Symposium an Early Learning Matters Supplement publication was produced. Highlighted in the publication was the Austin Early Childhood Collaborative /COFI partnership for Self, Family, and Team trainings. The partnership aimed to help parents access early childhood programs and feel confident in their roles as parents. POWER-PAC leader Gloria Harris, quoted in the article, acknowledged the power of investing in early childhood programs, “If we can get kids to learn in positive social, mental, and physical environments at young ages, then we may be able to lower the dropout rate.”
