NGA to Coordinate National Child Welfare Effort

The National Governors Association will work with five states—Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana and Rhode Island—to expand access to improve the quality of early care and education (ECE) for children through third grade.

Research shows that high-quality ECE supports children’s learning and development and has a positive return on investment. High-quality ECE programs also can improve children’s academic performance, build strong social and cognitive skills, reduce the cost of K-12 special education, increase long-term earning potential and lower health and criminal justice costs.

Selected states will receive support to develop and carry out plans focused on one or more specific state policy priorities.
