Early Childhood Data Collaborative

CSCCE is a member of the Early Childhood Data Collaborative (ECDC), a partnership of seven national organizations that support state policymakers’ development and use of data systems to improve early care and education programs and child outcomes. The ECDC seeks to build partnerships focused on improving early childhood data systems, offer resources on the development and use of comprehensive, longitudinal data, and provide transparency around states’ implementation and use of data systems. ECDC member organizations include:

Our participation in the ECDC is supported through funding from the Birth to Five Policy Alliance and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
