About Early Childhood OC
Early Childhood OC is a newly formed organization of local stakeholders that has developed Orange County’s Early Childhood Policy Framework. The framework is a shared vision based on the belief that Orange County prospers when its children are valued, nurtured, healthy and thriving, and when the systems involving young children and their families are functioning well. Early Childhood OC recognizes that there are many organizations working on behalf of young children and families, and that local and countywide policies and practices can impact the strength and quality of a child’s relationships and environments. The Early Childhood Policy Framework provides a common language to improve coordination and serve as a ‘north star’ to guide planning and decision making.
