Additional Information

Founded in 2011, the Collaborative worked toward the creation of an Office of Early Childhood (OEC) at the state level that merges state agencies serving young children and their families to better integrate systems and services.

In 2013, the Office of Early Childhood was created via executive order, and in response, the mission of the Collaborative expanded and became more robust: To bring the collective voice and resources of philanthropy to build and sustain a comprehensive early childhood system that works for all children, families, communities and the workforce in Connecticut.
