Early Childhood Development Commission
Suffolk's Early Childhood Development Commission provides resources, services, and programs to the children of Suffolk, birth through age eight, and their caregivers to support social, physical, emotional, and cognitive growth. It is our goal to ensure that every young child in Suffolk has the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential. We strive to be the vital link in our community concerning Early Childhood related issues throughout Suffolk. ECDC welcomes any opportunity to reach out and engage with our community.
