The coronavirus pandemic has put further strain on a national child care system in crisis, but local efforts to transform early childhood care and education (ECE) could help catalyze recovery for the St. Louis region.
At the forefront of the movement to sustain high-quality and equitable ECE is Katie Rahn, executive director of SouthSide Early Childhood Center. Dr. Rahn has worked in the field of early childhood as a classroom teacher, center administrator, consultant and a college instructor. She is especially passionate about creating systems-level change that will ensure children from disadvantaged backgrounds have access to quality early childhood services. More about Katie Rahn.
