The mission of the Northfield Early Childhood Initiative Coalition (ECIC) is to educate, activate and mobilize the entire community on the issues affecting young children from birth to age five. ECIC is a community-based campaign to assure that every young child in the Northfield community has the support they need to have a solid foundation for life. ECIC also leads the implementation of the Northfield Promise Ready for Kindergarten Action Plan. Northfield Promise is a movement to help all Northfield area children thrive, from cradle to career.

More than 30 of the community’s largest institutions are actively involved in this community-wide effort.
