Early Care

Our early care work is focused on:

  • ensuring all young children have access to high-quality care-giving environments that are developmentally appropriate, culturally sensitive, and that recognize parents as children’s first and most important teachers; and
  • creating an integrated state-wide system of early care and education that will lead to improved overall quality of state-subsidized programs, greater access for children and families, better data collection and analysis and, accordingly, wiser investments.
