Tribal college and university early childhood education initiatives: Strengthening systems of care and learning with native communities from birth to career


This report is a visionary reflective document of the first six years of a movement to transform early childhood education in Native communities, starting with TCUs as the incubators of the work and the beacons of change. The story of the College Fund’s work on ECE is the story of a project, that grew to become an initiative (multiple projects), that has now become a movement, in which this work has expanded to draw interest from communities outside of TCUs, including nationally and internationally. The purpose of this report is to focus on the process, the ways in which building systems and structures in Native communities provides a foundation for successful and sustainable ECE programs.
