High-quality early childhood education is proven to dramatically improve a child’s opportunities for a better future—particularly children from low-income families—while offering parents improved job stability and overall economic security. To ensure all children can access high-quality early learning and care, the federal government partners with states to support local efforts and innovation.
The First Five Years Fund has developed a series of state fact sheets to provide a high-level overview of the various early childhood education opportunities that exist within states, including those made possible with federal funding. Learn why federal support and partnerships are critical, especially at a time when states are doing such great work on behalf of our youngest learners.
