Branford Early Childhood Collaborative
All Branford children, birth through age eight years, are happy, healthy, safe and successful with a love of learning in school and in life.
Branford Early Childhood collaborative is the single coordinating entity for all early childhood efforts, birth to age 8, in Branford. We work to bring all key stakeholders together who play a crucial role in the development and education of Branford children to create a comprehensive early childhood system.
Funded through a partnership grant from the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund (GMF), the State Department of Education (SDE) and The Children's Fund of Connecticut, the BECC is successfully engaging a broad cross-section of our community and has developed an early childhood community blueprint in the areas of health, safety, socio-economic and early childhood education for all children in Branford. We are aligned with the Connecticut Early Childhood Investment Framework, Ready by 5 and Fine by 9.
The collaborative membership consists of town leaders, community organizations, public & private pre-k and elementary schools, health care community, businesses and families that are committed to the well-being and healthy development of Branford's children.
Grow with us...because the early years matter.
