The Interagency Early Childhood Committee (IECC)
IECC is an interagency forum working to raise awareness of community needs and resources, collect and analyze early childhood data and educate the community about the value of investing in early childhood.
Our mission is to promote healthy development and well-being of young children and their families through community collaboration.
Child Care Market Study
High-quality child care prior to kindergarten has well-known academic, social, and economic benefits. In the short-term, early childhood care and education increases school readiness and academic success. It also helps parents to fully participate in the workforce. In the long-term, it increases children’s lifelong achievement and attainment; promotes their health and well-being; and contributes to economic success for families and communities.
