About Us

The Early Childhood Collaborative of Southington is a group of committed educators, parents, grandparents, healthcare and childcare providers, business owners, civic organizations and members of the community who are deeply invested in the growth, development and academic success of young children in Southington.

The ECCS is an unincorporated entity.  The fiscal agent for the ECCS is the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain, a federally recognized 501c3 non-profit organization. Programs held by the Early Childhood Collaborative of Southington are offered to all under our Anti-Harassment and Non-Discrimination Policy.


The ECCS Director, Joanne Kelleher, was featured in the Greater Southington Business Podcast in July 2019 hosted by Brian Williams of Northshire Consulting. We discussed the history of the organization and how the ECCS can help parents of young children!
