What happens when we work together to ensure every child has a better start in school?

Children who participate in quality learning experiences from birth to age 5 start life with a lasting advantage. Research shows they’re more likely to finish college, get high-paying jobs, and be healthier and happier later in life.

But many children don’t have access to quality early childhood education. State and local leaders are collaborating with the University of Virginia to pursue a common vision: Every young child has the educational experiences they need for success in school and in life.
