I support prioritizing children and increasing public investments in high-quality, affordable child care to ensure every Vermont child has a strong start.

WHY?

A new report called "Vermont's Early Care & Learning Dividend" (February 2017) finds that expanding Vermont's early care and learning programs for children ages 0-5 would be an economic driver for the state, reaping net benefits of up to $1.3 billion as a result of increased future earnings and taxes of children and mothers, reduced health care costs, reduced K–12 costs of special education and repeating grades, as well as reduced future crime, substance abuse, and child welfare costs.
