A Collective Spotlight on Wethersfield

The Connecticut Children’s Collective, partners with local early childhood collaboratives from across the state that are doing amazing, innovative, system-changing work. In 2023 we started a new series, the Collective Spotlight. We will talk with directors, staff, parents, and community members who have created, improved, or brought awareness to programs and services that will better serve the children and families in their community, as well as the entire state. By sharing and learning from others, we begin to break down silos, and form a stronger, more forward moving, and innovative community of practice.

ALL of our LECCs are dedicated, hardworking, professionals who are committed to improving the lives of children. They all deserve a spotlight, and the Collective intends to shine one on them. In July, we will focus on Wethersfield, more specifically, the Wethersfield Early Childhood Collaborative. We interviewed Kimberly Bobin who is the Family & Early Childhood Coordinator for the Town of Wethersfield and Wethersfield Public Schools. Kim joined WECC as a parent volunteer and served as a member of the Connected to Community Committee. Her professional background includes customer service, marketing, and international relocation. She is a Spanish Speaker, a Wethersfield resident, and mother of two boys.

We spoke to Kim about the Kindergarten Transition program that she provides to the parents and caregivers in Wethersfield. She is proud to report that over the years, the program has largely been designed by the parents, which caught our attention– so we hope you enjoy watching the interview and learning more about this parent-designed Kindergarten Transition program!
