House to Hold Public Hearing on State Budget—April 28 at 6 PM
Now is the time to let state policymakers know that they need to say yes to early childhood and protect and preserve North Carolina’s nationally recognized early childhood education system.

Our state’s prosperity depends on their healthy development and growth. The key to ensuring that healthy development and growth is early childhood experiences.
