Nomination Form

The Early Childhood Action Collective at PHMC is launching a new initiative, Supporting Every Young Child for Success. The purpose of this initiative is to support ECE programs to provide access and full participation to diverse learners in Philadelphia.

We are seeking nominations of programs in Philadelphia that exemplify the spirit of inclusion. Through these nominations, we will build a website to highlight and promote best practices and build a searchable database and a resource bank of inclusion practices. Directors and teachers are encouraged to nominate their own programs.

Nominated programs that move to the semifinalist stage will be recognized and will receive a kit to assist with making adaptations for children. Semifinalists will be included in highlighted solutions and best practices. Finalists will participate in a panel discussion at a culminating event in March 2018 and will be highlighted on the website and in the resource bank. 

Nomination requirements:  any ECE program operating in Philadelphia that exemplifies the following principles:
  1. All young children belong.
  2. All young children can learn.
  3. Inclusion is a critical component of high-quality care.
  4. Inclusion encompasses all aspects of diverse learners-typical, social-emotional, IFSP/IEP, physical, race, culture, poverty, homelessness and more.
