Welcome to Cerro Gordo, Hancock & Worth Counties Early Chidhood Iowa Area

Our local Area is a community collaboration which exists to coordinate Iowa state initiatives and board activities, and plan for Empowerment services under school readiness/early childhood legislation. We serve the community by providing grants to local non-profits, which serve children ages 0-5, under our locally designated priority areas and within state legislative requirements. Also, we administer childcare and preschool scholarships for low-income families. This current fiscal year we are undergoing internal restructuring and a re-designation of our priority areas.



Our Vision:
Working together so every child is happy, healthy, and ready to learn.
Our Mission:
Building strategies to improve the lives of young children and their families through collaboration, coordination, and planning in Cerro Gordo, Hancock, and Worth Counties.
