The Thurston Early Childhood Coalition is a collaborative group of agencies and individuals in Thurston County, Washington dedicated to providing the tools and support children, parents, caregivers and educators need to ensure that our youngest children are given the strongest foundation in life. This foundation starts early before a child is born and develops dramatically as a child’s brain and body grows.
We invite any individual or organization who is willing to support our mission, guiding principles and strategic plan to join us.
