Early Childhood

Every child in New York deserves access to safe, high-quality, and affordable early childhood education.

UNH advocates for child-care, early Head Start, Head Start, and Universal Pre-Kindergarten as well as for salary parity between teachers, staff, and directors at these programs and their counterparts in public schools.

To support early childhood education, UNH advocates for:

Early Childhood Education for all New York Families

UNH works to expand access to affordable early childhood education for all New York families by breaking down barriers to enrollment, advocating for increased government investment, and promoting effective program models.

Salary Parity for Early Childhood Education Workforce

UNH advocates to address the pay disparity between New York City teachers, staff, and directors in community-based programs and their counterparts in public schools. Pre-K teachers in community based organizations earn as little as 60% of what their peers in public schools do. And the disparities grow over time.
