The Connecticut Office of Early Childhood (OEC) has announced . . . . it had been awarded an $8,591,087 federal grant – funds intended to enable the state to design and launch better, more cost-effective systems serving families with young children.

The most anticipated federal early childhood initiative in years, according to OEC officials, the new Preschool Development Grant program was highly competitive. Connecticut is a national leader among states in both grant size and per capita funding, officials indicated. 



    Our team works to align services, practices, policies, and resources at the local, regional, and state levels. Commitment, care, and support for children and families must happen at all of these levels in order to build and sustain a quality early childhood system.
