  • Universal, accessible, and high-quality early care and education programs.
  • Continuity of care and child-centered transitions.
  • Developmentally appropriate learning standards and assessments.
  • Holistic health and wellness.
  • Family resilience.
  • Increased pathways and support for culturally and linguistically responsive educators and providers.
