Join us for the Home Visiting Coordination Initiative (HVCI) Summit. We need your voice, ideas, and feedback.

The HVCI is a platform for information, education, and conversation. The intent is to provide cutting-edge information, build cross-program relationships, and offer additional opportunities for cross-systems operations. Ultimately, it aims to help programs increase staff retention and serve more families.

Pyramid Model

Pyramid Model is an evidence-based framework proven to be an effective approach to building social and emotional competence in early care and education programs. The pyramid model begins with the foundation of strong leaders who support relationship building, teaching children desired skills and behaviors, and using developmentally appropriate practice to support children’s social-emotional learning.

We have partnered with the Southern Adirondack Child Care Network and the Early Childhood Advisory Council (ECAC) to bring this opportunity to the community.
