Caring for Kids

The littlest learners have the greatest potential

Caring for Kids (CfK) exists to ensure that all kids enter kindergarten ready to succeed. Investment in early childhood care and education provides a strong start for children, enabling them to start on a path to success in school and in life. CfK provides resources and interventions for young children and their families with low or limited incomes, including holistic family support services, parent education, full- and part-time scholarships to 13 top-quality early childhood care and education centers, home visiting programs and mental health supports.
