Meeting Minutes


The majority of our funding, administered by the Cape Cod Children’s Place, is through the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care and the Children’s Trust Fund.  We also receive generous funding from the Sand Pond Foundation and the Cape Cod Foundation's Chatham Fund and Harwich Fund.  The Monomoy Regional School District supports a vital preschool-to-kindergarten transition team as well as in-kind services and space for the Monomoy Family Resource Center and ongoing programs. The Council also raises funds through events sponsored by the 501c3 Friends of the Harwich Early Childhood Advisory Council (aka Monomoy Early Childhood Council). Friends' memberships as well as business sponsorship is welcome!
