The Early Childhood Caucus is a bipartisan coalition of legislators supporting evidence-based policies to expand access to vital resources for children ages zero to five.
Our goal is to ensure that:
every Texas child is prepared to learn by kindergarten
that early childhood professionals have the resources necessary to be able to deliver premium services
that each community in Texas has a system of well-organized early childhood services
that 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.
