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.

Making Full-Day Kindergarten and Early Learning a Reality in NH

In 2017, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu signed legislation that provided at least $9 million in additional state funding for full-day kindergarten.

This milestone was the result of three years of work by Save the Children Action Network to implement our four-pronged approach of grassroots mobilization, media engagement, political endorsements, and legislative lobbying on behalf of kids.
