Our Mission

Supporting Children | Empowering Parents | Connecting Families

Based on the knowledge that families with young children have much in common, the Early Childhood Coalition of Beaverhead County seeks to ensure that all families in our county with children ages 0-5 have the opportunity to thrive in a supportive parenting community by providing access to material resources, developmentally appropriate play and parenting education needed for optimal early childhood development.
