Early Childhood

The goal of the Early Childhood Working Group (ECWG) is to strengthen CLOCC's focus and expertise within early childhood initiatives. The ECWG defines early childhood to be pre-birth through age five.

The ECWG serves 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 of the ECWG.

Co-Chairs: Emily Surico and Nancy Plaskett
