Description Aims and Objectives
A company limited by guarantee, which aims to support initiatives to improve literacy and numeracy skills in Guernsey and to promote a culture whereby the community takes a collective responsibility for education, and to provide support and help in the early years of parenting.
Since 2012, Every Child our Future (ECOF) has been training reading volunteers, both corporate and individuals, to support local children’s reading development. Through the programme, children develop crucial skills to become more confident and independent readers which is essential for learning and self-esteem. They also develop a greater love and enthusiasm for reading.
In 2017, realising families’ need for support in the very early years, the period called the 1001 Critical Days, ECOF opened Bright Beginnings Children’s Centre. It offers a range of activities and support to families from the antenatal period through to age two, and on into pre school. The attached Nursery and Preschool receives a grant to enable children of low income families to access free preschool education alongside their peers.
Organisation and Management
The company will be governed by a Board of Directors, and managed by a committee.
