Home-based childcare providers serve nearly two thousand children in Greater Hartford each day. Pilot programs initiated in Bloomfield, Hartford and Windsor have made a significant difference in improving the experience of children in the care of participating providers by offering small grants for facility improvements and delivering professional development and coaching assistance.

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.
