About Us

Little Sprouts & Company is a project of the Allegany County Early Childhood Advisory Council.

The Allegany County Early Childhood Advisory Council (ECAC) was established to address the achievement gap for the district’s students entering Kindergarten demonstrating full readiness.  The Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (KRA) data for 2018-2019 shows only 41% of kindergartens enter school fully ready to learn.  The Allegany County ECAC is focusing on narrowing the achievement gap by connecting caregivers of children birth to three with tools and free resources to help them effectively prepare their child to enter school ready to learn.
