The Learning Hub brings together the early childhood, K-12 education, health, human and social service, community, business, government, and philanthropic sectors intended to improve outcomes for young children and align services into one efficient and effective countywide early learning system, according to Learning Hub officials.

“The Early Learning team and community partners really enjoy the change to celebrate this special time with parents. This event is for the whole family. Partners and children are encouraged to attend and participate in the festivities.
