early childhood Education

Early Childhood Education (ECE) enables children, families and our communities to thrive.

SVP CT believes strongly in ensuring that all of Connecticut’s children have access to quality ECE and in the critical importance of provider workforce. As a result, SVP is committed to working in partnership to strengthen ECE, so that the system works for children and families, providers and communities.

One of the key ways in which SVP CT has supported early childhood development is through its partnership with the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood (OEC).

SVP has supported the OEC in a variety of strategic initiatives. Another key partnership is with the state’s advocacy coalition, Child Care for Connecticut’s Future, where SVP CT has provided technical assistance and backbone support.

SVP CT also works directly with ECE providers and nonprofits to help them to build their capacity.

Through both its state-level systems change and provider capacity building, SVP is developing relationships in ECE to work together to create a more equitable and sustainable future for all.
