Children should be healthy and ready to learn by the time they start school. To help make sure that happens, the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) initiative, funded by the Federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau, encourages programs for children ages birth to five to work together so that families can receive coordinated services.

The ECCS state plan, the Comprehensive Plan for Early Childhood Health and Development for NH: A Road Map to Collaboration Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol was developed by a large group of early childhood partners. The ECCS partners represent five important areas:

  • Access to medical homes and health insurance,
  • Social emotional health,
  • Early care and learning,
  • Family support, and
  • Parent education.

The ECCS state plan describes how agencies and programs that work with families of young children need to have a common vision for policy and funding development.

ECCS supports the Healthy Child Care New Hampshire Child Care Health Consultant project, promoting safe and healthy child care settings.
