Who We Are
The ECAC is comprised of experts in education, health care, child welfare, family support, and mental health. Members represent state agencies, advocacy groups, foundations, higher education, unions and other key organizations concerned with the wellbeing of young children and their families, as appointed by the Governor. This ensures that a diversity of perspectives and experiences inform our work.
The New York State Early Childhood Advisory Council (ECAC) was formed in 2009, to provide counsel to the Governor on issues related to young children and their families.
