All children have the potential to succeed in school and in life, but not all children have the same opportunities to realize that potential. In Addison County, 67% of infants likely to need care and 55% of toddlers likely to need care don’t have access to any regulated programs. For children in child care, early educators play a central role in defining the early experiences that shape their development and help them succeed later in life. Every child in Addison County deserves that opportunity.
- Expanding access to high-quality early education and care programs that promote early literacy and social skills.
- Fostering a love of reading among preschool children by providing access to free books from birth to age 5
