Letters to The State

We need lawmakers to make children and their families a priority! High-quality child care and early learning programs empower families, nurture children, and help whole communities thrive. Families earn more, businesses retain great employees, and children grow into productive adults.RIAEYC works at both the local, state, and national levels to educate lawmakers, empower families, improve child care settings and provide support for the first five years of life. To learn more about RIAEYC’s federal priorities, visit NAEYC’s website.
