Advocacy

Overview

Influencing public policy is necessary and effective to ensure our state's children receive the opportunities they deserve. Collaborative for Children strengthens the early care and education system through policy development and advocacy.

We work alongside agencies across Texas to:

  • Invest in-school readiness for all children
  • Raise state standards for regulated child care programs
  • Support well-trained early childhood educators
  • Make quality child care affordable for all
  • Fund full school-day public pre-kindergarten for children at risk

How to Get Involved

One of the best, easiest and most effective ways we can be advocates for our children is via our government representatives.

Public Policy Partners

With the help of our partners at the local, state and national level, Collaborative for Children will continue to advocate for quality early care and education.
