Southeast Early Childhood Support Network

The Southeastern Early Childhood Support Network (ECSN) is one of four regions throughout the state of Michigan; Eastern, Northern, Southeastern, and Western. The network regions are designed to provide development of, and facilitate access to, a coordinated, easy-to-navigate early childhood system for providers and families that addresses the needs of the whole child.

In the Southeastern region, the ECSN supports services in 11 counties including: Livingston, Oakland, Macomb, Jackson, Washtenaw, Wayne, Branch (GSC Supports), Hillsdale, Lenawee, Monroe, and Genesee (Childcare Provider Supports) through partnership, oversight and technical assistance to two Great Start to Quality Resource Centers- Southeast Resource Center and Wayne, Oakland, Macomb Resource Center.

The Southeastern ECSN facilitates cross-sector collaboration within the region for maximum utilization of federal, state and local resources to promote quality childcare provision and equitable access to early childhood support and services. The ECSN provides systems development, professional learning and technical assistance for the Great Start Network, which includes the Great Start to Quality Resource Centers, Great Start Collaboratives and Parent Coalitions. The ECSNs are funded by the Michigan Department of Education through federal Child Care Development Funds.
