About the Coalition

The Early Years Coalition is a community that consists of educators, both in early childhood and older, healthcare professionals, local organizations, and parents. Through research and collaborations, the coalition is able to develop plans to spark the healthy development of children, and truly show the early years matter most.

Who We Are

The coalition brings community together to collaborate on multiple projects such as: sharing the community level results from the Early Development Instrument (EDI), researching community resources available to the Early Years Coalition, gathering the required resources for the coalition (personnel, materials, space). Another major role the community plays is the creation and implementation of new policies services, increasing the quality, accessibility and responsiveness of community services, while reducing the duplications of existing services.
