New York's children and families deserve access to affordable, high-quality child care and early education. For some, the cost is daunting, as it can equal or even exceed what a family would pay in rent each month.
The Early Care & Learning Council, with a network of 35 child care resource and referral agencies in every region of New York State, works to improve early childhood development programs, ensure quality and best practices, spark reform at the legislative level, and promote strong, healthy beginnings for New York's children, aimed to prepare them for success throughout their lives. In fact, school readiness improves a child's chances of graduating high school, avoiding risky behaviors, and pursuing higher education, and therefore strengthening communities across New York State with deep and enduring impact.
Early childhood development is not just about today. It shapes tomorrow's workforce, our community health and the entire lives of today's children. When you give generously to support ECLC's work, you're giving New York's kids a positive and bright future.
