Founded in 1982, CCI met its mission by working in collaboration and partnership with other early childhood and public education experts and advocates to:

  • Promote the ever-increasing evidence that investments in a child’s early experiences lay the foundation for all later learning and success.

  • Document the lessons learned and promote best practices learned in implementation in New York and nationally to promote effective policies that make a difference for children

  • Collaborate with strategic partners to promote public support, advance better solutions to promote effective investment in early care and learning.
