Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning
Community Partnership Coordinator
I'm the North West Community Partnership Coordinator for the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL). I service 11 counties in my region: Bartow, Cherokee, Dade, Floyd, Fulton, Gordon, Haralson, Pickens, Polk, and Walker. My primary role is to coordinate the delivery of available state and local services for young children and families, support and seek to improve the quality of child care settings, provide opportunities for conversations about access to high-quality affordable child care, work with community stakeholders to align early childhood systems for children ages birth to eight, foster public awareness of early education services, and serve as a resource and referral to all DECAL programs.
