The Fund for Greater Hartford supported the development of the local early childhood collaborative system in CT through the creation of the CT Children’s Collective. The Collective operates as the intermediary that supports communication and coordination between those on the ground in towns who are working on early childhood needs for their residents and those at the state government level through the Office of Early Childhood.
One of the Collective’s new efforts is to spotlight innovative work happening in local communities. Their first issue is about the New Britain Early Childhood Incubator Pilot. If you are interested in reading more about the Collective and the local early childhood collaboratives as well learn more about the incubator, you can access a video at this link.
You can also read more about the Collective and the Local Collaboratives through the first-year report created a few months ago.
