ECCLPS receives funding from the Temple Hoyne Buell Foundation to support early childhood professionals in enhancing their knowledge, skills and professional advancement within the field of early childhood education.
Research indicates that when early care and education providers are educated, well-trained and skilled in their profession, the children they teach are more successful in school and in life.
The vision of ECCLPS is to create a seamless and collaborative system of quality early childhood services where families are valued and children are healthy and thriving.
