TRC Communities of Learning (CoL)

The TRC Communities of Learning (CoL) are peer learning networks dedicated to advancing knowledge relevant to children’s development in AIAN tribal contexts. They are comprised of tribal Head Start, Home Visiting, Child Care and other early childhood program leaders, evaluators, and researchers. Together, the CoL’s diverse perspectives and expertise are brought to bear on critical topics related to: 1) child and family growth and development; 2) child and family programs, services, and interventions; 3) tribal child and family program staff, organizations, and systems; 4) substance abuse and its impact on children and families; and 5) approaches to evaluation and research. Tribal Head Start and Home Visiting programs serve children and families prenatally through early childhood; Tribal Child Care programs serve families with children into early adolescence. The TRC CoL focus on work relevant across these developmental periods, but with a special emphasis on early childhood.  
Current TRC CoL include the TRC Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) CoL, the TRC Infant Toddler Social-Emotional Assessment (ITSEA) CoL, The Survey of Well-Being of Young Children (SWYC) CoL, the TRC Tribal Child Care Development Fund Plan Report CoL, and the TRC Tribal Early Childhood Early Childhood Services Needs Assessment CoL.
