Improving the Quality of Child Care
The Department of Early Learning reports that in 2015 only 45% of Washington children rated as kindergarten-ready in all six assessment categories. Quality early learning experiences in the first five years of life are crucial to school-readiness and overall community well-being. As Nobel Laureate Economist James Heckman has said, “The early childhood investments we make today in disadvantaged young children promote social mobility, create opportunity, and foster a vibrant, healthy and inclusive society and economy.”
