Building Connections

What Is Early Learning Connection Omaha Region?

Early Learning Connection (ELC) Omaha Region works collaboratively within the counties of Cass, Douglas, Sarpy and Washington to ensure a comprehensive array of early childhood professional development activities are planned and implemented that are responsive to the needs of educators who work with children birth through age eight in home, center, preschool and school based programs.

ELC Omaha Region partners include a broad representation of the early childhood field: center based child care, child care support groups, community agencies, early intervention teams, family child care, Head Start, higher education, local businesses and professional organizations. Partners may be involved in ELC Omaha Region in a number of ways including attendance at Partner Meetings, helping with conferences and events, sharing professional development opportunities, and advocating for young children and their families. Involvement in ELC Omaha Region provides opportunities to participate in the early childhood leadership community, strengthen local, state, and national early childhood initiatives, promote quality and distributing early childhood professional development opportunities and information.

The work of ELC Omaha Region and all publications are made possible by Grant Number 93.575 Child Care and Development Block Grant from the Office of Child Care, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
