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

“Our Milford community has gotten bigger, and yet we seem to have lost touch with others in the community.  Parents and families are busier than ever and need to be reminded about the myriad of services and programs that are available to them- most for free! This is a great way for those busy people to learn about all of these wonderful things in one centralized location.  It has also opened an avenue for communication among those providers.”
