Early Childhood Success
NLC is working with city leaders to build thriving communities by addressing issues of early childhood and aligning systems, so all children may reach their potential.
Why Early Childhood?
NLC’s Cities Supporting the Early Childhood Workforce initiative helps local leaders ensure that early childhood educators have the support and resources they need to provide a quality early learning experience so all children in their care thrive and reach their full potential.
NLC’s City Leadership for Building an Early Learning Nation initiative helps communities strengthen or build early childhood education systems.
NLC's Educational Alignment for Young Children initiative helps city leaders promote the early education and healthy development of children and increase the likelihood that they will achieve educational success by the end of third grade. Assistance is focused on educational alignment for children from birth to age eight.
The experiences in early childhood have a lasting impact on health and wellbeing. NLCI is partnering with five organizations on Networks of Opportunity for Child Wellbeing.
