WCGMF Discovery

Community Partners

Community partners of the Discovery initiative are located in 53 municipalities throughout Connecticut. In these cities and towns, Discovery communities establish a collaborative structure for inclusive local decision making in which parents are engaged as full partners. Members of the local collaborative table have access to an array of capacity building resources to support them in the development of a local early childhood plan. Through this process, community members develop the capacity to measure progress and identify the necessary stakeholders that must be engaged to ensure school success for every child.
