We’re Empowering Citizens of New Hampshire to Be the Voice for Kids

People in New Hampshire overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.

After years of work by advocates, supporters in New Hampshire and coalition partners, Governor Chris Sununu signed bipartisan legislation in 2017  that ensures more kids in the Granite State will have access to day kindergarten. We are continuing to push for full funding and increased access to high-quality early education, including full-day kindergarten, for all children in New Hampshire.

We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.

Learn how we’re investing in New Hampshire’s future.

Save the Children Action Network Disappointed in New Hampshire Budget which Fails to Prioritize Children and Families

Save the Children Action Network is deeply disappointed in the New Hampshire state budget, released today. The budget cuts nearly nine million dollars from the New Hampshire Child Care Scholarship Program. The budget also withdraws an amendment put forward by Senator Becky Whitley which would have provided child care providers scholarship funds based on a child’s enrollment, rather than attendance, a provision crucial as New Hampshire recovers from the pandemic, a time when child absentee rates are higher than usual.
