Children First coordinates efforts to reach out to state lawmakers and provides up-to-date resources for understanding the impact of state funding towards intertwined goals: increase access to care for working parents as well as the quality of care provided with smart use of state investments.

As part of the Pre-K for PA campaign, Children First mobilizes multiple stakeholders — civic leaders, parents, and early learning providers – to reach out and educate their lawmakers.

Started in mid-2017 Children First began convening stakeholders to research and advocate for system change to solve access and quality problems as they impact families with infants and toddlers.
