Our Impact

We've Come A Long Way

We have made significant progress and identified scalable solutions, but we still have a long way to go.
Now we need public investment to achieve a child care system that works for all Vermont families. 


When we are successful in our mission:

  • Access: 100% of Vermont families with children ages birth to five have access to regulated early care and learning opportunities that meet their needs 
  • High-Quality: 100% of children are in programs led by skilled early educators who are prepared for and well-compensated for their essential work 
  • Affordability: 100% of families who need it spend no more than 10% of their household income on child care

We are accomplishing our mission by:

  • Engaging and empowering people to call for change;
  • Reforming early childhood education policy to be inclusive, race-conscious, and culturally informed; and
  • Implementing program solutions in partnership with early childhood educators to prepare Vermont’s child care system for increased public investment.
