VERMONT’S EARLY CHILD CARE CHALLENGE
Every Vermont child deserves a strong start. The science tells us that the first five years of early childhood provide the best opportunity for healthy development, laying the foundation for success in school and relationships and in life. Yet there is a critical need for child care and early learning programs to support Vermont’s working families with young children.
In 2015, Necrason Group helped pass Vermont’s first Blue Ribbon Commission on Financing High Quality, Affordable Child Care and since then have advocated successfully for annual increases in funding for child care.
