About ECLP

The Early Care and Learning Partnership (ECLP) began as a desire expressed by colleagues of the late Dr. Paula Duncan, to do something to honor her life and her passion in promoting strengths. There is a growing body of evidence that Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) strongly impact brain and body development and early health; physically, mentally, cognitively, socially, emotionally, behaviorally and spiritually. We work collaboratively with other local organizations, across health, education, social services and the business community to ensure the very best health, education and overall wellbeing for our youngest Vermonters and their families.
