Our Work

Early Childhood Systems Integration


CHDI works to strengthen the state and local systems that serve young children. Our goal is to ensure these systems work together to address the full range of health and mental health needs for young children and their families.

In partnership with the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood, as well as other state agencies and foundations, we are:

  • Providing funding, technical assistance and supports to help communities integrate children’s health into early childhood systems
  • Building reliable health data systems to:
    • Inform state and community planning for early childhood health and school readiness
    • Give early care and education providers important health information about the children in their care
