Join this nationwide commitment to prepare
the children of your community for a brighter
future.

On June 23, 2014, mayors from across the country unanimously adopted a resolution in support of a National Commitment to Building an Early Learning Nation by the Year 2025. This unprecedented action took place at the U.S. Conference of Mayors Annual Meeting, seeding the beginning of a movement to ensure that children born within the next decade are equipped to face the challenges of the 21st Century.

Find out what an early learning community looks like and the steps you can take to change the trajectory for young children - starting from birth. Get inspired with examples of what other communities across the country are doing for young children zero to five.

These cities are building an Early Learning Nation.

Join them and put your city on the path to a brighter future by 2025.

"Not just one study - there are actually four, independent, longitudinal studies on early ed, all getting very very high annual rates of return. Most of these benefits are public benefits."
