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
