More Children. Prepared for School. Prepared for Life.
The Nebraska Early Childhood Collaborative harnesses the potential of providers to deliver high-quality early learning opportunities through access to business resources, innovative partnerships, and educational support.
Nebraska Early Childhood Collaborative (NECC) was established in 2014 as a strategic initiative of the Buffett Early Childhood Fund. NECC relies on shared services principles to elevate the business of early care and education and to increase access to high-quality options for all Nebraska families. Through our partnership with the Omaha Early Learning Centers, Educare Omaha and Educare Lincoln, we have made great strides toward our goal of providing access to high-quality early learning opportunities across our communities. For our organizational partners and the community, that means more qualified teachers and staff, stronger fiscal and program management, and additional access to high-quality coaching and training resources.
Even more exciting than the progress we have made, is the potential the Collaborative holds to impact many more child care providers across Nebraska and beyond. In addition to continuing to work to strengthen and grow our Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership, NECC looks forward to extending our business services and professional development opportunities to new providers in the coming years.Read Less
