Committed & Nonpartisan


As Ohio’s statewide advocacy leader for early care and education, Groundwork strives to achieve a set of policy goals, the foremost of which is to serve all infants, toddlers, and preschoolers receiving Publicly Funded Child Care subsidies in high-quality settings with access to full-day, full-year programs to meet their families’ needs. Our goals cannot be achieved without the support of people like you who are dedicated to moving our early care and education system forward.
