Councils & Partnerships: About

Early Childhood Community Councils are an effective strategy to strengthen collaboration in working toward the best interest of young children and their families. Community councils can include school districts, child care, Head Start, parents, libraries, public health, business, and anyone else who cares about the well-being of young children and their families. Councils create a vision, goals and strategies that are unique to the needs of their community. Shared leadership and responsibility help to build and sustain mutual respect and a collaborative spirit in the community.
