We want to welcome RI lawmakers to the new legislative session and make sure they keep important kids issues like child care and early childhood education on the table. All kids deserve a strong start in life.
We’re Empowering Rhode Islanders to Be the Voice for Kids
Rhode Islanders overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.
This is key because research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development.
SCAN Supports Gov. Raimondo’s Early Education Plans
Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo and SCAN CEO Mark Shriver read to children at a pre-K classroom in Pawtucket.
As Governor Gina Raimondo said, one way we can continue to make a difference for kids in Rhode Island is to expand early childhood education. It’s the best way to break the cycle of poverty.
As an advocate and a resident of Cranston, I'm proud to support Governor Raimondo's call to further expand education access for all children. Let's continue to invest together in our children education today to ensure a thriving future for them and our State.
After campaigning on the expansion of preschool and other early-childhood programs, many of the nation’s newly elected governors are following through with budget proposals that include money to support children from cradle to school entry.
