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.

After years of work by advocates, supporters in New Hampshire and coalition partners, Governor Chris Sununu signed bipartisan legislation in 2017 that ensures more kids in the Granite State will have access to day kindergarten. In 2022, we successfully advocated for legislation that will direct state agencies to develop a plan to improve access to high-quality child care.

We’re committed to ensuring all New Hampshire’s children in succeed in school and life.

Support kids with your vote in November

NEW HAMPSHIRE stands at a crossroads. When it comes to our future, children stand at the center of ensuring the brightest one possible. As a working mom, I know firsthand the importance of early childhood education and access to quality, affordable child care. My family has struggled with securing reliable child care, like so many other families across the state. The good news is that Granite Staters have the opportunity to cast their votes in November for a slate of candidates with strong records and fervor for policies that directly address the most critical issues facing New Hampshire’s children.

LTE: Support children in NH

As a manager of a childcare center and veteran early childhood teacher, I know firsthand the importance of early childhood education, having experienced high quality environments created for young children. Granite Staters have the opportunity this November to support candidates with outstanding expertise in supporting children to ensure all NH’s children get the best start to life. The building blocks for lifelong success are laid in the earliest days of learning. Quality early childhood education develops a love of learning, setting children up to thrive in the classroom and beyond. Investing in early childhood education not only supports children, but also NH’s families and communities by providing peace of mind for parents that their children are safe and learning by those who understand child development while parents work or attend school.
