Early Childhood Education

In order for our all of our nation’s children to fulfill their potential and succeed in college and career we must expand access to affordable, high-quality, early learning opportunities. 

Decades of research shows that properly nurturing children in the early years of life is instrumental to supporting enhanced brain development, cognitive functioning, and emotional and physical health. Early learning programs help prevent and mitigate achievement gaps for low-income children, with long-term benefits for our nation.

Committee Democrats are working to ensure high-quality, affordable child care is accessible for all.
