We want a system where all Connecticut children receive the early education and development support they need.
We want a system committed to building a foundation for learning for every child in their first 1000 days.
We want a system with accessible health, mental health, and social-emotional development support.
We want a system invested in early support of vulnerable children for great returns to individuals and society.
We want a system where local communities are empowered to make effective decisions for their citizens.
Connect with others to build communities and a comprehensive early childhood system in Connecticut.
