Every child deserves a strong start and equal chance in life. Let’s Grow Kids is a public awareness and engagement campaign about the important role that high-quality, affordable child care can play in supporting the healthy development of Vermont’s children during their first five years—the most important years for laying a foundation for success in relationships, in school and in life. Because Vermont’s shortage of high-quality, affordable child care is a serious challenge for our communities and our economy, our goal is to gain public support leading to increased, sustainable investment that gives all children the chance to reach their full potential.
Vermont faces a significant shortage of affordable, high-quality child care options. Small Talk is a new initiative by Let's Grow Kids to collect the personal stories of Vermonters whose lives have been impacted by the state's early childhood system.
Blue Ribbon Commission
Created by Act 58 of 2015, the Blue Ribbon Commission on Financing High Quality, Affordable Child Care will shine a light on the challenges and opportunities facing Vermont’s youngest children, their families and early childhood professionals.
