Prenatal-to-Five Summit emphasizes collaboration and starting early to help kids

More than 300 people gathered June 2 at UW–Madison’s Gordon Commons for Wisconsin’s first statewide Prenatal-to-Five Summit. Attendees included practitioners, early childhood professionals, scholars and community members of varying backgrounds. The one thing all had in common was a passion for helping children and families in Wisconsin live better lives. The event — “Elevating the Early Years through Access and Equity” — was hosted by the Center for Child and Family Well-being in the School of Human Ecology, in partnership with the School of Education and several other schools and colleges at UW–Madison, UW System administration, and UW-Extension.
