The Early Childhood Action Collective (ECAC) is conducting a survey to better understand how early care and education (ECE) providers in Philadelphia work with young children with special needs. Results from the survey will inform a white paper on early intervention and inclusion of children with special needs in ECE classrooms in Philadelphia. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey, and invite your staff and colleagues to complete the survey as well. Not only will your responses and feedback help to improve practices for working with children with special needs, but if you complete the survey and provide your email, you will be included in a random lottery to receive one of 20 $25 Visa gift cards once the survey has ended! Thank you for taking this brief survey, and for sharing with other ECE staff.

The Early Childhood Action Collective (ECAC) is a new initiative at Public Health Management Corporation, sponsored by the William Penn Foundation. ECAC is a multi-disciplinary research and policy consortium developed to identify data and interventions that have promising innovative applications for use in Philadelphia. The group will produce a comprehensive assessment of risks and opportunities associated with specific strategies; provide a forum for discussing risks and challenges; and develop recommendations and action steps to build successful early childhood programs in Philadelphia and across the Commonwealth.
The goals of the Collective are to:
• Establish and maintain a shared knowledge base and facilitate informed decision making.
• Create the multi-disciplinary set of analyses necessary to adequately inform decision-making within the highly complex and interconnected industries that constitute the ECE landscape.
• Maintain a birth to five years old focus in developing and implementing solutions.
• Develop and implement a communications strategy with effective methods of distributing research, aggregating consortium member contributions, and disseminating information to the target audience and beyond.
• Build capacity among providers, administrators, and various organizations to enhance and deliver quality programming to children in Philadelphia.
• Leverage existing work in the city, state, and beyond, to contribute to improved delivery of high quality early education programs in Philadelphia.
• Share information about findings and successes to encourage and enhance the work of programs
