About Us
Dear Parents, Guardians, Child Care Operators and Community Members,

The Franklin County Community Early Childhood Council is a vehicle for bringing together many community members to support issues of importance to children and families. Our mission is to support and strengthen the community by providing information to families, promoting quality in all early childhood programs, and to offer quality training to the early childhood stakeholders in collaboration with other agencies in Franklin County.

This council involves members who represent a cross-section of the community and who can foster efforts to improve outcomes for young children and families. Membership includes the Franklin County Health Department, Blue Grass Head Start, Franklin County Schools, Frankfort Independent Schools, Family Resource Centers, Community Based Services, Parents, Blue Grass Community Action, FIRST Steps, Comprehensive Care, IMPACT, Paul Sawyier Library, local daycares, YMCA, Quality Enhancement Initiative Staff, Good Shepherd School, Child Care Aware, CoventryCares of Kentucky, Kiwanis of Frankfort, Franklin County Cooperative Extension and Kentucky State University. All interested community members are encouraged to contribute their ideas and expertise to the council.  

Below are some strategies and activities that we have used to improve early childhood and school-readiness in Franklin County:

  • Many activities to increase STARS awareness in the community.
  • Sponsored free training for child care providers and their parents
  • Hosted a Community Baby Shower
  • Worked to improve the school-readiness of children
  • Provided Brigance screening of preschoolers and training on how to improve school-readiness in child care settings
  • Participated in local kids fests and community events to hand out information on school-readiness

Our council meets the fourth Monday of each month at 1 p.m. at the Paul Sawyier Public Library from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Please feel free to join us anytime. For more information about our meetings or how you can get involved, contact me by phone (502-227-9448) or Email (grtbeginnings@yahoo.com).
