We strive to create environments where young children are safe, healthy, learning, and thriving.

We provide funding, regulations, training, and oversight to ensure that all families have access to the services they need.

Our mission is to coordinate a high-quality early childhood system that supports the development of young children in the State of Connecticut. Through our work, we strengthen the role that families and communities play in each child’s life, by giving. Our goal is to give families the skills and support to care for the unique needs of their children.
