“Preschool Nation,” a national communications advocacy platform that showcases the societal benefits of quality early childhood education for young children, families, communities and businesses across America, will launch today, Oct. 21.
Through a collaborative website, Preschool Nation is positioned as a one-stop shop that allows all stakeholders to tell compelling stories, share resources and research for increased early education opportunities for more children.
Preschool Nation partners say the campaign is right on time. Individual states have been increasing their Pre-K efforts and the research in support of quality early education has been overwhelming.
Preschool Nation is spearheaded by Los Angeles Universal Preschool (LAUP), a leading nonprofit organization funding preschool services to about 11,000 four-year-old children in Los Angeles County each year.
Los Angeles Universal Preschool is a nonprofit network of more than 300 preschool sites. It was established to fund free or low-cost quality preschool education to four-year-old children of Los Angeles County.
