The research is in: high-quality early education, health care, and social/emotional development services lay the groundwork for children to be more successful in school, more likely to graduate from college and have higher overall lifetime earnings. That's why making high-quality early care and education available to every family makes sense for Ohio.
In order for our schools and communities to succeed, we need to make sure that Ohio's youngest children have opportunities for healthy early childhood development. Many factors promote positive early childhood development, including strong parenting, stimulating environments, quality early learning experiences, and access to health care.
groundWork is a non-partisan advocacy initiative working to advance quality early learning and development as the most transformative strategy to improve school outcomes, increase the life-long success of Ohio's children, and lay a strong foundation for economic prosperity in our state.
