Build Ohio

Build Ohio is now the website for the latest information on the Early Learning Challenge Grant.  Formerly Build Ohio was an independent collaboration of public and private partners, and the work of the organization was transitioned to the Early Childhood Cabinet. Ohio remains a Build state, and continues to contribute to the Build national movement that is redefining early childhood for our children and their families.

The Licensing Toolkit to Limit Screen Time in Child Care is a great resource for Child Care Providers. 

As with our other toolkits, this one contains three concise, audience-specific sheets:
1) Licensing Agency Action Sheet
2) Child Care Provider Action Sheet
3) Legislator Action Sheet

All of these can be found here.

Every Child Matters

Every parent sees endless possibilities and great hope in the eyes of a child. As a nation, when we look at today’s children, we see tomorrow’s leaders — scientists, teachers, doctors and diplomats. But for our children to thrive and America to stay competitive in the 21st-century global economy, we must support their development, their families and the public policies that work for both.
