New Brunswick's integrated Early Childhood Development Centres (ECDC) model combines regulated child care, education, family and community health services into a single, accessible program designed to meet the needs of children and their families from the prenatal period through to the transition to elementary school.

The three-year pilot project, a partnership between the Margaret and Wallace McCain Foundation and the Government of New Brunswick, was designed to inform program practice and provide policy makers with a guide to building a comprehensive, accessible, accountable family-oriented child care and education system.
