Leadership Committee

The St. Tammany Ready Start Network Leadership Committee is comprised of 20 volunteer members who champion early childcare and kindergarten readiness in St. Tammany. Our committee represents the St. Tammany Parish School Board, early childcare providers, local government, business/industry, community, and parents.

Non-voting early childcare providers and voting members work together to facilitate meaningful conversation and recommendations about decisions that will increase the quality of our childcare centers, develop and sustain a high-quality workforce, and ensure that each child has access to a high-quality early education.
