Our Work

Advocating for policies and programs that guarantee all children have a Head Start and a Strong Start in life.

 

CDF is committed to ensuring all children are guaranteed a Head Start and a Strong Start in life, which starts with access to high-quality, comprehensive early childhood programs from birth through age 5. We are committed to working with our partners to pass the Strong Start for America’s Children Act to make this vision a reality. This legislation offers new hope to young children and their families by investing in and encouraging expansions of quality programs from birth through age 5 and including universal access to quality preschool for low-income 4-year-olds.
