We’re excited to announce the launch of The Early Childhood Agenda!

This is a new partnership that invites stakeholders like you to build a consolidated agenda for early education and care. 

The Early Childhood Agenda will connect organizations, parents, advocates, businesses, educators, providers, and government representatives that all support the growth, development, and education of our youngest children and the wellbeing of families in Massachusetts through public awareness, policy development, and advocacy efforts.

Strategies for Children will host a series of meetings and facilitate a consensus building process composed of five working groups:

These meetings will produce a list of policy priorities shaped by community needs and the lived experiences and perspectives of our partners.

We’ll consolidate this list into an agenda that identifies key investments, policies, and practices that would advance the field’s top priorities for the next two years.

Please join us for an OPEN HOUSE to learn more and get involved!

You can register for one of two times that works for you on Wednesday, October 12, 2022:
