Trust for Learning (the Trust) believes that we can collectively create a publicly-funded, seamless early learning system that supports the unique and unlimited potential of every child. In pursuit of this goal, we advocate with our partners for policy solutions that are rooted in equity and grounded in the science of child development. The Trust engages in policy efforts at multiple levels —local, state, and federal — to strengthen systems, improve program quality, and expand early childhood programs aligned with the principles of ideal learning environments. While many policies — from tax law to paid family leave — impact the lives of young children, this document outlines the Trust’s priorities in three key areas of early care and education policy — access, quality, and workforce — that guide our grantmaking and internal work.
