Early Life

Common Sense Kids Action advocates for high quality early childhood services for every child, including childcare, pre-K, nutrition and preventive health care. We know that strategic early investments in kids work.

Unfortunately, millions of American kids are denied the opportunity to receive the right start during their formative years. Approximately one in five children in the United States live in poverty. The barriers to opportunity and healthy child development are even greater in many communities of color. For example, Latino and African-American children are far more likely to live in poverty than white children in California.

Our work with policymakers and advocates across the country is focused on changing the early childhood landscape by expanding access to high- quality early childhood services.
