The first years of a child’s life form a bedrock of experience and learning that shapes future health, happiness and capacity for success. Those years only happen once.
WE ARE LET’S GROW KIDS
We are educators, advocates, and experts, but most of all, we’re Vermonters who believe all children deserve a strong start and a bright future, beginning with affordable access to high-quality child care. We drive change in public policy, in child care programs, and in our communities across Vermont, so that all families have the care they need.
TOO MANY KIDS ARE MISSING OUT
Our current child care system was built for a different time. Over 61% of Vermont’s youngest children don’t have access to the child care they need. That means too many kids are missing out on a strong start in life. The ripple effects of these missed opportunities impact our families, communities, economy... all of us.
WE ARE MAKING CHANGE
Our mission is to ensure affordable access to high-quality child care for all Vermont families by 2025. Since we’ve started, investments in early education have increased and more Vermont families have access to high-quality child care. But our job is not done.
WITH YOUR SUPPORT
We can create long-term change that will ensure that all of Vermont’s children have the opportunity to succeed individually so that we can thrive together.
