Tell Congress: We Need Early Education for All!

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

There are currently 166 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

The bipartisan Strong Start for America's Children Act has now been introduced in Congress. It’s a landmark bill that will expand universal access to high-quality pre-kindergarten services for all 3- and 4-year-olds, especially kids from low-income families. It will also strengthen quality child care for infants and toddlers.

Studies show that children from low-income and underserved communities enter kindergarten already behind their classmates in key areas such as oral language and vocabulary skills. We must close the opportunity gap before it starts: early childhood education is a proven way ensure that all students have a fair shot at success in school and in life.

Introducing this bill was only the first step. We need House and Senate leadership to see clear momentum right NOW for this must-pass legislation.

Tell your members of Congress: endorse and co-sponsor the Strong Start for America's Children Act!
