A New CT Office of Early Childhood?

Governor Malloy says a new Office of Early Childhood or OEC, will fundamentally transform how the state helps Connecticut’s children ages zero to five.

Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman says its been hard for parents maneuver within the current system.

"To get through the bureaucratic mess in government was terrible," said Wyman. "Because you’d have to go from one department to the other department."

Sen. Beth Bye and Maggie Adair from the state’s Early Childhood Alliance will talk about how a new agency could help the state’s nearly 400,000 young people.
