For more than three decades, CCI developed a 360 degree view of how to support families and children as they seek quality, affordable early learning opportunities for their young children.
CCI believes all children have a right to start life with the best possible foundation of early care, learning and health, from birth to school age. This belief informs our efforts to improve policies through providing data, policy reports, and effective coalition building.
CCI's work consistently focused on the following core priorities:
Make Pre-K Truly Universal as a core component of public education and a birth-to-age eight system of early care and learning
Expand Access to Quality, Affordable Child Care that meets the needs of today’s families and children to keep children learning and parents earning.
Strengthen School-Community Partnerships to strengthen early childhood education and make the most of existing resources, capacity and expertise in diverse communities
Build a Prenatal to Age 8 System to support children’s healthy development and learning
