Early Childhood Education

Investing in early childhood education, which includes evidence-based home visiting,
high-quality pre-K and child care programs for children from birth until age 5, is one of
the most effective ways to break the cycle of poverty.

Studies show that children who receive a high-quality early education are 20%
more likely to graduate from high school and, on average, earn a 50% higher income.

What We’re Doing     

Through a combination of government relations, communications and grassroots mobilization,
we build relationships with the public and policymakers to increase investments in high-quality
early childhood education. 

We empower our grassroots network of more than 280,000 advocates to raise their voices and
lobby their 
local, state and federal lawmakers to invest in kids. By joining together, we become a
force that turns advocacy into policy wins for kids.
