Branford is a hidden gem. You live here for a reason, and so do we. Aside from the physical beauty, the town offers affordable living, excellent public schools and a rich history with New England charm. We are a diverse community and care deeply about each other.
Within our bountiful town, the Branford Early Childhood Collaborative (BECC) is also a hidden gem. Those who know who we are and what we do, love and cherish us. At the BECC we understand that we live as individuals with the commitment to care for one another. We know parenting is hard and growing a thoughtful, caring future citizen takes all of us. All of us sharing our wisdom, information, and need for connection.
This is the heart of the BECC.
Who We Are We are a 16-year old dynamic organization. And just like a 16-year-old young adult, we are constantly evolving. We have just become a 501(c)3 organization, which means we are maturing, setting goals and are more independent. Our Board of Directors are parents, devoted to Branford, and just like you, committed to raising caring citizens of the world. Though we come from various professional backgrounds, we share a common goal – we care about giving parents and children resources to strengthen and support them.
What We Do We connect.
We connect people to people. Kids to books. Parents to opportunities. Parents to caregivers. Caregivers to each other. Kids to kids. Teachers to knowledge. We connect parents in our community with the people and resources that can help them succeed.
Why You Should Care Branford is our community, our town, our world, and our future. Raising children in a safe and nurturing community provides stability so our children grow into healthy and productive citizens. We know that positively shaping the next generation is a priority for you, too. When we invest in people, we create a place where families flourish and thrive. And we invite you to join us in helping Branford families become the best they can be. We are stronger together.
