The New Haven Children’s Ideal Learning District (NH ChILD) is an initiative that reimagines the Early Care and Education systems and structures that perpetuate racial and economic disparities in access to high-quality early learning experiences.

NH ChILD is a revolution that, in partnership with the New Haven community, challenges the current ECE systems through building an ECE infrastructure; revamping ECE funding sources; creating a common application and resource network; supporting family engagement and partnership; implementing professional learning initiatives; and streamlining the degree-granting process.
