Framework for Connecticut’s Statewide System
By Michelle Doucette Cunningham —
Here’s another great resource: Framework for Connecticut’s Statewide System of Early Childhood State and Local Partnerships
This report is the foundation of the work of the Connecticut Children’s Collective, and the place we look first for strategic guidance. Commissioned by the Connecticut Early Childhood Funder Collaborative, a project of the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy, the report brings national expertise to consider a new “Framework.” From their website:
In 2015, Early Childhood Funder Collaborative (Collaborative) provided funding for the purpose of developing recommendations for an infrastructure connecting state child-serving agencies, especially the Office of Early Childhood, with local communities and communities with each other. The resulting report, Framework for Connecticut’s Statewide System of Early Childhood State and Local Partnerships, concludes with a set of recommendations for Connecticut Leaders to consider in creating a statewide network of local or regional early care and education partnerships.
