Tragically, millions of children living in poverty are eligible for Head Start but miss out on vital programming because they cannot access or afford it. Please ask your members of Congress to support funding for Head Start and Early Head Start so more kids can thrive!
We’re Empowering Voters to Be the Voice for Kids
As the political voice for kids, we’re engaging communities and policymakers across the country
to ensure children have a healthy and strong start in life.
State Polling Results
SCAN commissioned a bipartisan polling team to conduct survey research among general election voters
in five states to gauge their opinions about early childhood education and early intervention policies.
In addition to general election voters, SCAN conducted interviews among both Democratic and Republican primary voters.
The results showed that legislators and candidates looking for issues with broad appeal that can meaningfully
improve the lives of their constituents should invest in our youngest learners and early intervention programs.
