About Us

The Council's mission is that all children birth to 5 years old possess the foundation that will enable personal and school success. They will live in strong family units that are supported, strengthened and empowered within their communities.


The Oldham Community Early Childhood Council, formally named the Rural KIPDA Community Early Childhood Council, was organized in 2000 with many of the original boardmembers still volunteering and collaborating. 
We are supported annually by the KIDS NOW initiative through funding. We continue to support and collaborate within the early childhood community to bring quality care and education to young children.

We welcome guests and partners to our mission.
