Starting early is starting right on time.
Nevada Early Childhood Advisory Council (ECAC)
Governor Gibbons, through a September 2009 executive order and continued by an executive order signed by Governor Brian Sandoval in July 2011, established the Nevada Early Childhood Advisory Council (ECAC) to strengthen state-level coordination and collaboration among the various sectors and settings of early childhood programs. The executive order empowers the Director’s Office of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to establish and maintain the ECAC. The Council adopted the following vision shortly after its inception.
“Nevada’s children will be safe, healthy, and thriving during the first eight years of life, and the system will support children and families in achieving their full potential.”
