Pittsfield Promise

Helping preschoolers arrive ready to learn.

https://www.berkshireunitedway.org/sites/berkshireunitedway/files/Pittsfield%20Promise%20logo.jpgUnder the guidance of the Early Childhood Impact Council (ECIC) our coalition works to ensure kindergarten readiness from birth onwards with the assistance of a warm, engaged, caring family member or person in each child's life.
