Each year, the Community Early Childhood Councils (CECC) convene to network, share best practices and consider the future of early childhood development in Kentucky. This year’s Annual Institute is being organized by the Governor’s Office of Early Childhood and will focus on the important role the Councils play to help ensure that all Kentucky children are ready to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.
