Advocacy Map

In order to keep early childhood advocates informed about what is happening across the country that impacts early childhood education, Defending the Early Years is providing this interactive map. Advocates can click on an individual state to see current initiatives there or can click on specific topics (i.e., online preschool, recess, play-based learning, etc.) to discover what is happening in a variety of states affecting that particular topic. We invite you to add information about efforts that impact early childhood education in your state, city, advocacy organization, community, or school.
