Elbert County Early Childhood Council

Here at Elbert County Early Childhood Council, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. Our mission is to ensure that Elbert County is a community of well-rounded, happy, healthy, educated children and families. The council is made up of members from our community; including principals, preschool directors, nurses, early childhood mental health specialists, specialists working with children and families with disabilities or in need of additional support, along with others dedicated to helping the youngest members of our community.


Nurse Family Partnership

The Nurse-Family Partnership National Service Office is a non-profit organization that provides network partners across the country the information, support and specialized training they need to properly implement Nurse-Family Partnership and produce the same successful results that have made the program a national model.

Nurse-Family Partnership empowers first-time moms to transform their lives and create better futures for themselves and their babies. Nurse-Family Partnership works by having specially trained nurses regularly visit young, first-time moms-to-be, starting early in the pregnancy and continuing through the child’s second birthday.
