A successful Louisiana starts with successful children. We understand the importance of early care and education not only to our state and economy, but to our children and families. Louisiana has an opportunity for our children to thrive, not just survive, but time is of the essence!
With 60% of Louisiana kindergartners starting behind their peers, we must invest in early care and education now.
As a nonpartisan, independent source of data and research, the Louisiana Policy Institute for Children works to ensure that all children have equitable access to resources necessary to be successful in school and in life.
