Announcing the Release of Durham County’s Early Childhood Action Plan

October 4, 2021

There are nearly 35,000 children from birth through age 8 in Durham County. We believe each and every child deserves to grow up in a community where they can THRIVE. Check out Durham’s shared goals and strategies to support Durham’s families with young children in Durham’s Early Childhood Action Plan

We encourage you to…

Get Involved! Visit our Durham ECAP website’s “Get Involved” page for more information on opportunities. There is a role for everyone to make Durham a better place for babies, toddlers, young children, and their families and caregivers.

Share the Plan! Please share the plan far and wide! You can share via email, social media, or print using this communications toolkit. DCI has posted on Facebook and Instagram, which can be re-shared.
