Early Childhood System of Care

Early Childhood System of Care is defined as “A coordinated network of comprehensive services and supports that meet the overall health and developmental needs of young children in the context of their culture."-Georgetown University. At PSU’s System of Care Institute, we recognize the critical multi-disciplinary nature of supporting families and young children, and seek to foster the coordination and collaboration of all child and family-serving systems throughout all of our projects. We ground our approach in the beliefs that all families are best served in the communities in which they live, in a culturally and linguistically competent manner, and in partnership with them. Our goal is that our projects will span the range from promotion, to prevention, to early intervention.
