The Early Childhood Collaborating Committee (ECCC) is the committee under the Champaign County Family and Children First Council responsible for looking at the issues faced by families in the community who have children under the age of six. Currently, we have a focus of making sure all children are socially and emotionally ready to learn by Kindergarten.
