We’re Mobilizing Granite staters to Be the Voice for Kids

People in New Hampshire overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.

In 2023, following our effective campaigns to help re-elect a bipartisan slate of early learning champions, we pivoted to prepare for a successful state legislative session.

Together with our in-state coalition partners, we achieved big wins for children, families and the child care workforce.

Together, we secured a historic investment of $60.5 million for child care, resulting in greater access to quality child care for parents and kids, support to grow and invest in the child care workforce, and more viable, sustainable child care businesses.

Join us as we continue to advocate for Granite State kids!

New Hampshire in the News

For those who care about families, children, and New Hampshire businesses, please support The Child Care for NH Working Families Act (SB 237) currently pending before the New Hampshire Senate Health and Human Services Committee.

Providing safe, quality child care in a child care center is expensive, and the crisis is multifaceted.
