Child Care Services to Hold Public Awareness Sessions Statewide

The Alabama Department of Human Resources Child Care Services Division will be holding Public Awareness Sessions throughout the State to inform child care providers and parents about the Alabama Early Learning Guidelines.  The sessions will explain what the Early Learning Guidelines are, who they are for, where the Department is in regard to the status of completion, and how DHR plans to implement them.

The Early Learning Guidelines are a part of the Good Start, Grow Smart (GSGS) early childhood initiative to support the goals of the No Child Left Behind Act.

The Early Learning Guidelines describe what children need to know, understand, and be able to do at certain ages and developmental stages. The guidelines will be voluntary.
