There are 29 Early Childhood Planning Region Teams in the state. Each one is an interagency coordinating council made up of local schools, health and human service agencies, Head Start, families, and others. There are almost 1,000 children in Nebraska from birth to age three, being served through the Early Development Network. Yet, some eligible children still have not been identified. You can be part of a "grass roots" effort to locate children and to make parents and the public aware of the assistance available through the Early Development Network.
