Investing in early childhood education includes evidence-based home visiting, high-quality pre-K and child care programs for children from birth until age 5. It 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 activism, we build relationships policymakers and mobilize the public to increase investments in high-quality early childhood education.

We empower our grassroots network of hundreds of thousands of supporters 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.
