PARTNERS Newsletter

Help us rename the PARTNERS Newsletter!

PARTNERS Newsletter, produced and distributed by the Division of Early Childhood Development (DECD), is being rebranded to increase its appeal to professionals working in child care and early learning.

We want to hear from you! Submit your idea for renaming the PARTNERS Newsletter by June 30th. If your submission is chosen, you will win a prize pack.

PARTNERS readers work in many different areas of child care, including home centers, child care centers, Head Starts, Judy Centers, after-school programs, elementary schools and more. Your submission should convey innovation, professionalism and be comprehensive to all child care types listed here.

The DECD leadership teams will review all entries and choose the name that best represents the future of PARTNERS Newsletter. The winner will be contacted via email.

The PARTNERS Newsletter is currently distributed to the licensed child care community and early care and education agencies four times per year. The newsletter highlights DECD news/updates, current events and trainings, and informs providers of the latest in rules/laws and regulations.
