    2. Support early childhood community and educators in providing adequate, equitable, and safe early learning programming through public and private partnerships and on-going collaborative professional development. 
    3. Provide authentic learning opportunities to young children in formal and informal settings to support development of the whole child.
    4. Foster children’s language, literacy, social & emotional, physical, and cognitive development through rich content at home, in school, and in the community.
