AND WHY IT MATTERS
Even before the pandemic, 3 out of 5 of Vermont’s youngest children did not have access to the care they needed. COVID-19 has only exacerbated already pressing challenges for families and early childhood educators. Without equitable access to a high-quality and affordable child care system, Vermont cannot fully recover and grow its workforce, support young families, or set its youngest residents up for future success in school, relationships, work, and life.
Our vision is a Vermont in which all children have equitable access to the early childhood education opportunities they need for a strong start in life.
