“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.

Economists have found that quality early childhood education offers one of the highest returns on any public investment—more than $7 for every dollar spent.

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.

“This campaign gives us an opportunity to create an alliance and an advocacy platform to maximize our resources and leverage every local, state and national resources to ensure that every child can have access to a quality early education experience,” said Celia C. Ayala, chief executive officer of LAUP.

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.
