Natick Early Childhood Network
WHO ARE WE?
Natick Early Childhood Network (NECN) is a direct service organization and resource and referral agency. We are grant funded by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) and locally administered by ACCEPT Education Collaborative. NECN provides free services to all Natick families with children ages birth-8 years.
NECN provides information and accessibility to high-quality early education and care, programs and activities designed to promote parent education, family literacy, and opportunities to engage with other Natick families. Most important, NECN has a safe and enriching space for families to play and meet other folks with young children.
