Early Learning Partnerships
Early learning partnerships are formal collaborations between local education agencies (LEAs) such as school districts or open-enrollment charters, and private early learning centers (ELCs) or Head Start centers. The resulting partnership allows them to dual enroll children and provide prekindergarten and/or additional comprehensive, wrap-around services. Click on a button below or view the overview video.
