Early Childhood

Early Childhood Interest Group

Staff Liaison: Katelyn Kanwischer

The goal of the Early Childhood Interest Group is to strengthen CLOCC’s focus and expertise within early childhood initiatives. We define early childhood to be pre-birth through 5 years of age and serve to build and strengthen relationships that link early childhood stakeholders to valuable resources that support obesity prevention and healthy lifestyles.

Members include individuals, community-based organizations, administrators, educators, service providers, families, and others who work within the early childhood field and support the efforts, which focus on early childhood care, education settings, and breastfeeding support.
