The Early Childhood Investment Corporation (ECIC) is dedicated to serving and advancing the interests of young children in Michigan. We provide research-based information to guide policy and program decision making so that every child has an equal opportunity to succeed in school and in life.
We collaborate with state and local, public and private partners to promote early childhood policy and program innovations and provide technical assistance and evidence-based information about community strategies that help children and families thrive.
Our core strength is our dynamic, creative, and dedicated team of early childhood experts. We apply our advanced academic training and extensive professional experiences to real world issues and policy-relevant projects.
A fundamental tenet of our work is that we strive to find the links between research, policy and practice. It is within this nexus that truly innovative and impactful programs, initiatives, and policies are created.
