Promoting developmental screening for children birth to age three.
Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) is a federally-funded program that brings together primary care providers, teachers, families, and caregivers to develop seamless systems of care for children in the critical formative years from birth to age 3.
Working with health care providers, social services, child care, and early childhood education programs, ECCS helps children grow up healthy and ready to learn by addressing their physical, emotional, and social health in a broad-based and coordinated way.
North Dakota ECCS is focused on increasing developmental screening of young children to identify and treat problems early, as well as educate parents and caregivers about healthy child development.
Uniting for Early Childhood Day
Thanks to all the children, families, legislators, capitol employees, childcare providers, and early childhood entities who joined us on Friday, January 30, 2015. Special thanks to First Lady Betsy Dalrymple for her encouraging words. If you haven't seen the inspiring photos in the Bismarck Tribune, it's worth a minute of your time to take a look. Please also peruse our photo album on Facebook and PCAND's blog. The event was attended by a dozen entities that serve young children and was co-sponsored by ECCS, PCAND, and the Children's Consultation Network.
