Have a Heart this Valentine's Day

A boy makes the shape of a heart with his hands.

Early education prepares children for a lifetime of learning. But so many kids — especially ones from lower-income communities — never get that opportunity. 

In America, early learning is unaffordable and inaccessible. 50% of families live in a child care desert, and the average annual cost exceeds $10,000 per kid.  

Parents are forced to choose between unemployment and financial strain, while children miss out on support during their most crucial window of development. 

Send a message to Congress: Have a Heart and fund early childhood education!
