Start small, achieve big.

Early childhood education builds a prosperous US by providing infants and toddlers with the developmental resources necessary for success in school, college, career, and life. Investing in early childhood education is the first step toward building a better US.

Our Mission

The First Five Years Fund helps America achieve better results in education, health, and economic productivity through investments in quality early childhood education for disadvantaged children from birth to age five. We provide knowledge, data, and advocacy, helping federal policymakers make investments in the first five years of a child’s life that create greater returns for all. Start building with early childhood education and you’ll finish with a better US.
