The first few years of a child’s life play a critical role in its overall success or failure as an adult. Recently a new group was created to help the children of Harrison County grow and develop to their full potential.
The group is called the “Harrison County Community Early Childhood Council” (CECC) and its purpose is to bring organizations together so that they can serve the area’s children more efficiently and effectively.
“Our area has many groups that are dedicated to helping our county’s youngest citizens. Unfortunately, many of those groups did not have a forum for dealing with the various issues important to a child’s success,” said Stephanie Adamkin, chairperson of the Early Childhood Council. “Hopefully, the Early Childhood Council will give us a forum to promote public awareness about the importance of a child’s formative years.”
According to Adamkin, the ECC plans to meet monthly at the Harrison County Health Department. The health department is located at 302 Oddville Road in Cynthiana. The next meeting will be held on Friday, March 9th at 12:30 p.m.
“We are encouraging all organizations that work with young children, age birth to 5, to come and join us at our next meeting. By working together, we believe that we can improve the lives of our area’s children.”
