Start Early Stories
Early learning makes equal opportunity a reality. In the Start Early stories below, individuals from across the country share how their lives have been transformed by early learning and care.
Why are we champions for early learning?
Inequality starts at birth. The impact lasts a lifetime. Decades of research clearly demonstrates that quality early childhood education can help break the cycle of poverty, but the U.S. has failed to improve outcomes for children at scale. With your help, we can change that.
