Who We Serve

ECEC- Mother reads to little girl

Butler County Early Care and Education Council

Early Learning and child development play a major role in a child’s future success in school and in life.

As a leading provider of high-quality early education programs, Lifesteps is committed to further advancing professionalism within the field of early education and helping all families provide quality early learning experiences for their children. As part of this commitment, Lifesteps has served as the coordinating agency for the Butler County Early Care & Education Council (ECEC) since 2002.

The Butler County Early Care & Education Council brings together early childhood programs, families, public and private schools, higher education, businesses, and other child-serving organizations to assess what quality early learning opportunities exist in the community and to develop annual goals that encourage quality early learning. The Council also builds partnerships between schools and community-based early learning programs to help families make a smooth transition into kindergarten.

Community partners play a critical role in achieving these goals by providing input and resources for local projects.
