New "One-Stop Shop" for Parents

Posted on Wednesday, January 2, 2008 4:56:20 PM

State officials recently joined me in launching a new service for parents seeking early childhood care and education options, such as public pre-K, Head Start, or child care.  This new program is the result of legislation that I authored. 
Parents can now call 2-1-1 or go online to find public programs for their kids.
Making sure there is "no wrong door" to these services is an example of smart government at work - by coordinating services we can enroll more children using our existing resources. Click here to read more about my ongoing effort to make sure parents know how to enroll their kids in the early childhood programs that can shape their lives forever.
