Early Connections, Inc
Early Connections supports the success of young children and their families through leadership, advocacy, and quality programs in early care and education.
Programs and Services
Formerly the YWCA, Early Connections has operated in Erie County since 1895, providing outreach and programming to young children and families in our area. Early Connections serves children from infant through school age, providing high-quality early care and education at five locations; three in the City of Erie, one in North East, and one in Union City. At Early Connections’ centers, in the care of loving and qualified staff, children are prepared for success in school and life.
Additionally, Early Connections partners with others to meet the needs of our community, serving as the Northwest Regional Intermediary for the Registered Early Childhood Education Apprenticeship Program, and also administering Erie's Future Fund.
