Early Childhood Education
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.
Send a message to Congress: we must make big investments in CCDBG so parents can work to support their families, and kids can get a head start in life.
Send a message to President Biden and Congress: The State of our Union’s child care system – it’s failing families and children.
While it can be tricky to advocate during these times, there are ways to safely and effectively be a voice for kids. As we welcome a new season with a fresh start, we’ve got a few ways you can “spring” into advocacy.
After nearly a year since the pandemic began, we checked-in with a few of our advocates to hear what the recently passed American Rescue Plan means for their community and what they look forward to as we work to rebuild our economy.
No child should face hunger. Here’s what the Biden administration has done so far to help end childhood hunger and what we at Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) are advocating for.
