Our Vision

The Wethersfield Early Childhood Collaborative (WECC) is a community that values the early years (prenatal through age 8), where families feel welcomed and connected to one another and have the resources they need to raise healthy children who are developmentally ready for school socially, emotionally, physically, academically, and behaviorally.
