Early Childhood Utah Council
In September 2011, Governor Herbert designated the existing Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems State Team to also function as the State Advisory Council
on Early Care and Education, resulting in the creation of Early Childhood Utah. The Council consists of leaders from the fields of children's health and mental health, early care and education,
and parent resource programs. The mission of Early Childhood Utah is all children receive the care and support they need to flourish in home, school, and community.
The primary outcome of Early Childhood Utah is to help ensure all children receive ongoing developmental screenings with a valid reliable tool,
and receive appropriate care and educational services to meet their developmental needs.
Early Childhood Utah meets three times annually and work is done through four committees:
- Promoting health and access to medical homes
- Early care and education
- Social/emotional and mental health
- Parent engagement,support, and education
