OUR EARLY CHILDHOOD WORK FOCUSES ON

EARLY CARE AND EDUCATION

Providing more children with access to a safe and effective learning environment, both in child care and pre-K, gives children a strong start in life and helps ensure more children enter school ready to learn and on a path to success.

EARLY SUPPORT FOR MOTHERS, INFANTS, AND TODDLERS

A strong start in life requires a seamless continuum of care from preconception to post-partum, breastfeeding support, access to effective Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) for children under three with disabilities and developmental delays, home visiting programs, and other effective family supports.   

THE INTERSECTION OF EARLY CHILDHOOD AND OTHER ISSUES

Effective early childhood policies set kids up for lifelong success by addressing their health and social-emotional needs and ensuring educators have the tools they need to help kids with challenging behaviors thrive and reach their potential.
