CFM Presents at the Second Annual Virtual Resource Conference for Early Childhood Professionals
On September 30, 2021, The Children’s Foundation of Mississippi (CFM) will present alongside 30 other public health organizations and state agencies for a discussion on how early childhood professionals, such as preschool teachers and daycare providers, can acquire additional funds, resources, and support in order to further aid the children they serve. Licensed child care centers and family child care providers can also benefit from attending this discussion.
Executive Director, Linda H. Southward, will speak on two important bodies of research developed by CFM: The Blueprint for Improving the Future of Mississippi’s Children and Mississippi’s Risk & Report.
The Blueprint for Improving the Future of Mississippi’s Children presents a multi-faceted and data-driven plan to increase the success of Mississippi’s children by taking a holistic approach to improving and implementing systems in the state to promote children’s wellbeing.
Mississippi’s Risk & Report analyzes the potential risks affecting Mississippi’s children on a county-by-county basis, and provides insight into what community resources can be implemented to decrease risks in certain areas of the state.
CFM is proud to be presenting at such a critical time–as educators are adjusting to the new school year–and to provide detailed research on supporting the wellbeing of children in the state. Both the Blueprint for Improving the Future of Mississippi’s Children and Mississippi’s Risk & Report will provide valuable insight and awareness to early childhood professionals on how they help support the children they serve.
The conference will be entirely virtual and will span two and a half hours. Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and engage with each other about the discussion material. Registrations are open up until the day of the event.
