Tell Governor Shapiro that Pennsylvania is United for Early Care and Education

Pennsylvania's new Governor Josh Shapiro is already working on his Administration's priorities.

Pre-K for PA, Start Strong PA , Childhood Begins At Home, and Thriving PA Campaigns are uniting in a petition effort urging the new Administration to grow access to high quality pre-k and child care, family support services like evidence-based home visiting, and Early Intervention as well as perinatal and children’s health care. We are also asking them to advance initiatives that will stabilize programs and appropriately compensate the professionals that provide these services.

Please consider adding your name to this joint petition effort to the new Administration by visiting our petition page and completing the online form.

Together we can send a strong message to Governor Shapiro that Pennsylvania is united for early care and education!

Sign the Petition

Research shows that 90% of brain development occurs in the first five years of a child's life. As children progress through these formative years, their caregivers have profound and lasting impact on their learning and development of healthy relationships.

Over the last several years, young children, their families, and their educators have experienced overwhelming stressors in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Early Childhood Educators continue to navigate the instability of staff retention and hiring while maintaining safe environments for themselves and those in their care.

  • Families are working to define new routines and a sense of stability while struggling to obtain care amidst center closures and long waitlists at high-quality centers.

  • Children are trying to catch up after the loss of in-person interactions left them behind in building the social-emotional skills needed to form healthy relationships.

We at Trying Together are committed to advocating for and supporting them to meet their varying needs. Your support is crucial in achieving our outcomes and supporting caregivers and educators in shaping the future through the children entrusted to them.
