On Tuesday, July 14 at 6:30 pm, Bartholomew County’s early learning community will gather to learn about bold plans for the state’s early education space and consider their own shared vision for their community. Providers of early learning and child care, as well as community members with a passion for children’s learning, will gather at The Columbus Learning Center to hear from Lamont Hulse and Mindy Bennett, both from Early Learning Indiana prior. Then, participants will work together to explore the expansion of local opportunities for children.

The July 14 event is the first of several upcoming forums designed to help communities leverage their assets to elevate early learning in Indiana’s towns, cities, counties, and regions. Facilitated by Partnerships for Early Learners staff, these community visits will allow providers, leaders, and parents to increase opportunities for children, aged zero to five, and their families.
