EEC Advisory Council on Early Education and Care
white space

In July 2008, An Act Relative to Early Education and Care was signed into law and in addition to delineating the specific mandate of the Department and the functions of EEC’s Board, the legislation formally establishes an Early Education and Care Advisory Council. To view the legislation (SECTION 33; Section 3A.) visit: http://www.mass.gov/legis/laws/seslaw08/sl080215.htm.

EEC’s Advisory Council on Early Education and Care consists of a diverse group of legislatively named and appointed members and is charged with reviewing and making recommendations to the Board of Early Education and Care regarding an array of EEC programs and initiatives.
