Early Learning Indiana’s board and staff partner with other advocates around the state to advocate for increased accessibility and affordability of high-quality early childhood education for Indiana residents.
In recent years, Early Learning Indiana and partners have advocated at the local, state and national level for higher child care standards and additional funding to provide pre-K to low-income children. Early Learning Indiana leads advocacy efforts by educating the public as well as informing our leaders and policymakers.
Child Care Answers, the outreach arm of Early Learning Indiana, is an active advocate on behalf of parents. Child Care Answers operates a “Legislative Action Center” that is regularly updated on its website. Other advocacy partners include United Way of Central Indiana, which runs a campaign called “Kids Need Quality.” The Indiana Association for the Education of Young Children (IAEYC) is also very active at the Statehouse and in Congress. IAEYC’s legislative action page can be found here.
