Denver, Colo., Nov. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The American Indian College Fund leads the nation in supporting development of culturally relevant early childhood education programs at tribal colleges and universities to secure the health and wellness of young Native learners and their families. Inspired by its work under its Restorative Teachings Early Childhood Education initiative, the College Fund will host the Tribal Indigenous Early Childhood Network (TIECN) Forum on November 15 at the National Association for the Education of Young Children Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.

The TIECN forum’s goal is to continue the dialogue between educators about Native early childhood education across the nation to support stronger engagement with emergent research and new networks across tribal and indigenous communities.

Sessions will provide educators serving Native learners and communities the opportunity to see work educators are conducting with Native learners; to share expertise, curriculum, and program assessment tools; and to gather information on creating a visioning process for programs to serve young students in their communities.
