What Is TECCS?

Transforming Early Childhood Community Systems (TECCS) is a national initiative developed through a partnership between the UCLA Center for Healthier Children, Families and Communities and the United Way Worldwide. The goal of TECCS is to improve the school readiness of young children in a community by measuring and mapping the developmental progress of young children at a population level and engaging diverse stakeholders in using this information to advocate for young children. TECCS mobilizes local partners to develop more effective early childhood service systems through four core components: 1) Measurement and Mapping; 2) Community Engagement; 3); Targeted, Place-Based Systems Improvement; and 4) a Shared Learning Network.
