HEALTHY BEGINNINGS FOR ALL CHILDREN

CHDI is working to ensure all children in Connecticut are off to a healthy start by integrating early childhood health and mental health into settings where young children live, learn and play.

We focus on developing comprehensive early childhood systems that promote optimal healthy development. Research has clearly documented the importance of social-emotional health and physical development in the first years of life as the grounding for lifelong well-being.
