About the Connecticut Early Childhood Alliance
Founded in 2002, the Connecticut Early Childhood Alliance is a statewide organization committed to improving outcomes in the areas of learning, health, safety and economic security, for children ages birth to eight. Our goal is for all children in Connecticut to enter kindergarten healthy, eager to learn, and ready for school success. Our guiding vision is that families have strategies and capacity for early care and education so that each child is supported by comprehensive and interconnected services including early learning, nutrition, and social, emotional, and physical health.
All of the work of the Alliance is designed to improve outcomes for children ages birth to eight. In order to ensure optimal early childhood development for every child, the Alliance advocates for comprehensive services and policies that promote healthy development including child care, early education, home visiting, feeding programs, mental and behavioral services, health care, housing and family economic security. The Alliance seeks to eradicate the adverse conditions that inhibit healthy development and access to enriching experiences, conditions such as poverty, racism, violence, abuse, and neglect. The Alliance has recently completed a strategic review and has identified three priority focus areas to strengthen efforts to improve outcomes for Connecticut’s young children: a comprehensive system of early childhood; infants and toddlers; and mitigating the negative impact of family poverty on early childhood development.
