Caring for Kids


As the foundational program of Great Expectations, Caring for Kids (CfK) exists to ensure that all kids enter kindergarten ready to succeed. CfK provides resources and interventions for young children and their families with low or limited incomes, including holistic family support services, parent education, scholarships to 14 top-quality early childhood care and education centers, home visiting programs and mental health supports.

Take action for early childhood

Together we committed to individual and collective action to advance this topic. View a list of suggested actions anyone can take to advance this topic and move us closer to a system and practices that work for us all.
