About ECCS

Little Dixie Community Action Agency is proud to be the first recipient of the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Impact (ECCS Impact) grant in the state of Oklahoma. Since being awarded the grant in August of 2016, the ECCS Impact team has been working hard to promote and enhance early childhood services throughout the counties of McCurtain, Pushmataha, and Choctaw, with the overall goal of seeing a 25% increase of age appropriate developmental health among the 3-year-old population.

Little Dixie CAA - ECCS - Early Childhood Development

Early Childhood Development

The emotional, social and physical development of young children has a direct effect on their overall development and helps shape the adult they will become. That is why understanding the need to invest in early childhood aged children is so important, to maximize their future well-being. Early detection is key to making sure your child is ready to enter school.
