2018 Annual Report

2018 was a year with some big opportunities for state early childhood systems builders and young children while it also was a year of seemingly insurmountable challenges.

  • BUILD’s Equity Leaders Action Network saw the completion of activities with its first cohort…
  • State Leaders completed a Leadership Institute through Project HOPE and now four states have been awarded grants and technical assistance to support their efforts to promote optimal health and wellbeing for young children, prevent and mitigate early childhood adversities, increase access to opportunities for young children and families in communities with significant disparities, and create (or improve) feedback loops between communities and the state system…
  • The QRIS National Learning Network’s 2018 convening was enormous and a smash success…
  • BUILD partners with NCCP to continue to support state leaders seeking to reduce, and ultimately end, the suspension and expulsion of young children from early learning settings...
