In partnership with First 2000 Days, the University of Colorado Denver’s Center on Collaborative Governance’s Team embarked on a detailed Social Network Analysis to gather baseline data to determine the health of the First 2000 Days Network. A sample of the early childhood development system in Calgary, Alberta, Canada participated in the survey. The Network worked with the team of the University of Colorado Denver to customize the PARTNER tool, including input from Darrin Hicks (University of Denver) and his research on the Process, Quality, and Working Together Scale.
