Dr. Amie Lapp Payne is a Child Developmentalist specializing in Children’s Social and Emotional Development, Mother of twins who is no stranger to publishing articles, public speaking, or presentations; the President of Your Child and Family Solutions Consulting and the Founder of Ouchy Wrap.

From being a consultant to the National Center on Early Childhood Quality Assurance responsible for designing, implementing and evaluating health and safety compliance curriculum for Head Start, pre-K and early education partnerships to supporting Head Start programs as an Implementation Planner for the nation’s largest super grantee; from conducting research on a multi-million dollar Head Start Monitoring contract to being appointed as the Deputy Director of the Washington State Department of Early Learning including responsibility for the oversight and integration of the Head Start State Collaboration Office; from being the Executive Director of the Washington State Association of Head Start and Early Childhood Economic Assistance Program (ECEAP, Washington State’s Pre-K) to researching Head Start Programs by assessing the quality of teacher-child relationships and the impact on children’s well-being, Dr. Payne gets it. She knows that Head Start programs offer even more than high quality early learning and development experiences, they also provide essential health and mental health services and deliver critical family support.

“I continue to be deeply impressed and moved by the mission and the people of Head Start, especially your education, outreach and support of children and their families—even and especially, virtually—throughout our pandemic. What has always brought me the most joy is ‘taking what we know and making it what we do’—and Head Start does that too. Empowering and equipping those who are making the biggest impact in children’s lives is not only my purpose, it’s my passion—and that is why working with you is such an incredible privilege.”
