Buncombe Partnership for Children’s (BPFC) mission is to strengthen the capacity of educators, families, and the community to build a strong foundation for children’s learning and development beginning at birth. Given that the majority of brain development occurs between a child’s birth and their entry into kindergarten, we invest in children 0-5, their families and the early educators who care for and teach them to partner with local organizations to deliver programs that:
*Improve the quality of early care and education
*Increase access to high quality early care and education
* Expand early literacy opportunities
* Offer family support
*Support children’s healthy development
Additionally, BPFC serves as the backbone organization for the Asheville Buncombe Preschool Planning Collaborative (ABPPC), a community collaborative focused on the expansion of high-quality, accessible child care. ABPPC is a partner in a local coalition of coalitions, Family-friendly Affordable Buncombe focused on housing, transit and child care. More information about our work can be found at http://buncombepfc.org.
As a majority White-led organization, staff and board members have been working to understand our individual privilege, white supremacy power structures, and address inequities in our business structure and the early childhood field. We have much of our own internal work to do. As a local early childhood funder, we have the power to focus resources to lift up, grow, and support the leadership of BIPOC teachers and administrators. We are looking for a consulting partner who can support us in this process.
Buncombe Partnership for Children is seeking written quotes for the contracted program monitoring of three Smart Start funded in-house activities: Sustaining Facility Quality, Child Care Resources, and Shaping Buncombe. Additional details about the scope of work are in Exhibit A – Scope of Services. The monitoring is expected to be complete, with all payments for services made by June 15, 2021.
Individuals and agencies interested in providing program monitoring services, should send written quotes including the proposed cost, qualifications of the individual to perform the monitoring, and a timeline for services to be rendered by the close of business on Friday, March 19, 2021.
Thank you for your consideration. Please forward this message to others who may be interested.
