What are your hope(s) for our work together as an Early Childhood Collaborative; Why are you a member?

“I’m thrilled to welcome our littlest community members and their families to Milford and to help them connect with local early childhood resources so they can thrive.  As a collaborative of stakeholders focused on ensuring every young child in Milford has the opportunity to build a strong early childhood foundation and reach their fullest potential, we realize the impact of our work together can be far greater than any of our individual efforts.
