In 2021, NTE published a landscape paper titled Families as partners in Newark’s evolving early childhood landscape that mapped policies and programs influencing early childhood development in Newark in the areas of research and advocacy, maternal and child health, parenting and family stability, and child care and early learning. 

Drawing from 80 stakeholder interviews spanning these sectors, we developed guidelines for effective collaboration and continuous improvement of citywide work in early childhood development, which were well received by stakeholders.
