Ways to take Action

Start Strong PA: Making the Case for High Quality Child Care Starting With Infants and Toddlers

PennAEYC is one of ten partnering organizations launching a campaign to provide children a quality educational foundation by giving our youngest children access to high-quality child care that their families can afford. We kicked off the initiative with a press conference in the PA Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday, January 29.
