New early learning website reflects interagency work

Commissioners Stephen Bowen and Mary Mayhew announced on Jan. 30, 2013, that they had signed a joint memorandum to form the State Agency Interdepartmental Early Learning team and to encourage the state’s entire early childhood system to take part in this effort.

Based on the Race to the Top application, the interagency team will work to create a unified system to serve children from birth to age five across the Maine DOE and the Maine DHHS.

A  new website showing the work in this area has been launched. The website offers a new platform to reflect the interagency nature of the work of both departments on early learning. Please visit the new website at
