Freeport-McMoRan sponsors the 2018 First Things First Early Childhood Summit

August 28, 2018

The First Things First Early Childhood Summit brings together professionals, stakeholders and supporters of early childhood education and health to share innovative strategies, research and best practices that help kids be ready for school and set for life.

Ensuring that our youngest kids arrive at kindergarten prepared to succeed requires all parts of the early childhood system to work together, and the Summit offers an exciting opportunity to build both the knowledge and relationships critical to our collective success.

Freeport-McMoRan also participated in the inaugural Tribal Connections event themed Land, Language and Family: Foundations of Children’s Success. Participatnts took a  journey through the world-renowned Heard Museum, reflecting on the role of the land, language and family in giving native children the foundation upon which to build their success.

At each stop along the way, participants will become both student and teacher, as they are invited to answer questions and share their experience or perspectives in working with children and families living on tribal lands.
