The Child Connection Center is designed to serve families in three Gloucester County Schools: Herma Simmons Elementary School (Clayton); Saint Michael, the Archangel Regional School (Clayton); and Central Early Childhood Center (Deptford.)  The goal of the Child Connection Center is to work together with collaborative and strategic partners to nurture healthy relationships among students and their families and promote student development in social, emotional, behavioral and mental health so that each child has the opportunity to reach academic success and move toward positive development as self-sufficient adults.
