Milford Thrives Early Childhood Collaborative
The Milford Thrives Early Childhood Collaborative launched in September 2020. As a cross-sector coalition, we are committed to working together to support the healthy development of Milford’s youngest children and families. Collaborative members include representatives from child and family-serving agencies, SAU 40, early childhood caregivers, healthcare and mental health providers, parents and other stakeholders.
We envision Milford to be a place where families thrive and all young children are provided with strong early childhood foundations so they can reach their fullest potential.
In this upcoming year, the Milford Thrives Early Childhood Collaborative will:
- Identify the local and regional early childhood resources/supports/services;
- Develop a better understanding of the early childhood resources and programs available, serving as EC Ambassadors for Milford families;
- Research areas of priority need and how to best engage families with young children (via a formal needs assessment); and
- Determine priority actions and solutions we can take together to meet these needs.
” We’re excited about our work together to build a nurturing, supportive Milford community. We understand that our impact as a collaborative of cross-sector partners will be much greater than any of our roles as individuals. Together, we are committed to creating a community where every child can thrive. “
