Why Early Childhood Education?
Investing in quality early childhood education now is the best way to support existing families in the workforce and ensure a more qualified, higher skilled workforce in the future.

For the 88th legislative session, we seek:
Ensure local workforce boards have the standards and supports needed to maximize funding, improve transparency, and provide families access to high-quality child care.
- Strengthening the childcare workforce
- Helping parents get back to work with affordable child care and PreK
- Investing in the child care infrastructure in Texas
