About Us

The Early Childhood Caucus is building a bipartisan coalition of support for evidence-based policies for children ages 0-5 and their families. Our goal is to ensure that every Texas child is prepared to learn by kindergarten, that early childhood professionals are well-qualified, that each community in Texas has a system of well-organized early childhood services, and that Texas has a strong early childhood system and underlying data is used to coordinate, collaborate, and support children, families, and their needs.

“We’re really excited to see so many legislators committed to ensuring that our state policies give kids a strong start in life. From bolstering child care to providing health coverage to little kids to tackling the COVID academic slide for English Learners and other young students, we know there are a lot of opportunities for legislators to come together to support our youngest kids in Texas.
