Voters Show Overwhelming Support for Early Childhood

An Important Message from the First Five Years Fund:
The results are in! American voters know now what early learning advocates have known for years: if we want our children to have a strong start in life, we need the country to make serious investments in early childhood education, and we need to make them now.
The First Five Years Fund is delighted to release the results of a national survey of voters which finds that a significant majority of Republicans, Independents and Democrats support a plan to help states and local communities provide better early childhood education programs to parents of children from birth to age five. Conducted by the bipartisan research team of Public Opinion Strategies and Hart Research, the national telephone survey of 800 registered voters found overwhelming support for ensuring that children gain the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.
