Early Learning Now

Early Learning Campaign

Learning begins at birth. Every experience children have, from their earliest months, shapes the basic structure of their brains.

Our goal is to create an early learning system in Washington that supports families by making sure they have high-quality options for their children’s early care and learning—whether their children spend their days at home, in formal childcare, or with family and friends.
