Our mission is to ensure that by 2025, every child from birth to five in Vermont has access to high-quality, affordable care & education in a self-sustaining system. Three interwoven initiatives address this challenge:
A statewide education and citizen-advocacy campaign.
Strengthening the quality and viability of early care and education.
Researching and developing new strategies for positive impact.
We have found a leverage point for long-term, transformative change. It centers on our kids, it’s based in our communities, and it can unlock the grip of deep inequities.
Investing in early education is a proven approach to reducing the costs of health care and special education. That protects the most vulnerable, and it benefits all of us.
—Vermont Governor Phil Scott (R)
By supporting the Permanent Fund’s campaign to make high-quality child care available to all kids and affordable to all families, you can build on an enormous amount of strategic progress that has already been made.
