Supporting Newcomers’ Access to Early Childhood Services

What will this webinar cover? 

Publicly funded early childhood services can support newcomer refugee and immigrant families by helping children build a strong foundation and families thrive as they resettle in a new country. However, refugee and immigrant families are less likely to enroll and participate in these services than other eligible families. 

This webinar will present strategies and lessons learned from the field on how refugee service providers can support families’ access to child care and early education, early intervention, and maternal, infant, and early childhood home-visiting services. A panel discussion with resettlement leaders will address common barriers to participation and share approaches to boosting family access to, and comfort with, the available services. 

Is this webinar for me? 

This webinar is designed for refugee service providers and community stakeholders who want to support refugee and immigrant families with young children by connecting them to early childhood services that support their children’s holistic development and school readiness, while enabling parents to pursue employment and professional development opportunities.
