Child Care & Early Learning

Intro Image

With seven in ten mothers in the workforce today, child care is essential. Families need affordable, high-quality child care and early learning so parents can keep working and children can get a strong start.


Child Care

High-quality child care gives children the boost they need to succeed in school and gives parents support to be productive at work — but only if they have access to the care they need.

Head Start

Head Start provides high-quality early education to children from low-income families. It has helped millions of children build skills to succeed and millions of parents play a key role in their children’s futures.


High-quality early learning programs put children on a path to success in school and in life — and they help parents ensure a better future for their families.
