Start Early’s policy and advocacy efforts are grounded in our decades of work with children, families, the workforce and systems leaders, as well as our work to advance equity. Through systems building; legislative, administrative and grassroots advocacy; and consultation and thought leadership, we aim to:
- Improve early childhood experiences for all young children through programs and policies that support early learning and care, maternal and child health and family engagement.
- Sustain and increase public investments for quality, comprehensive early childhood education.
- Support policies and service delivery systems that increase access to high-quality, affordable early childhood education and positively impact young children’s learning, health and family outcomes.
