Strong Foundations For Our Youngest Children

Invest in Us

Girl on swingSince 2002, the BUILD Initiative team has been helping states construct a coordinated system of programs, policies and services that help young children thrive. We bring state leaders together to share what is working in their communities and help them collaborate to create effective strategies that reflect the needs of all stakeholders, including families and providers. 

Since the Early Childhood Funders Collaborative designed the BUILD Initiative, early childhood systems building has moved forward at a dizzying pace. The advent of the federal Early Learning Challenge, new state investments in pre-K, the widespread implementation of more sophisticated QRIS and Professional Development systems – all have advanced the cause of aligned, comprehensive early childhood systems in states. 

The progress is tangible, and there is much more to do to ensure the healthy development of our youngest children.
