The New Jersey League of Municipalities is partnering with the New Jersey Child Care Economic Impact Council under the leadership of the John S. Watson Institute for Public Policy of Thomas Edison State College to sponsor a web-based seminar for mayors and municipal leaders titled, Children are Community: Creating Family-Friendly Cities for Young Children, on Tuesday, October 14, 2008 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. Learn about examples of city-led initiatives that support early childhood and get tools and resources to advance efforts in your municipality.
We have an exciting panel that will share how early childhood is important to the current and future workforce of our cities. Joining us on the seminar will be Tonja Rucker, Ph.D., Senior Program Associate of the Early Childhood & Family Economic Success from the National League of Cities, Saskia Traill, Ph.D., Program Manger from the Insight Center for Community Development (formerly NEDLC), and Ana I.
