PA Legislative Early Childhood Education Caucus

PA Legislative Early Childhood Education Caucus The ECE Caucus is a bipartisan, bicameral group of state legislators protecting and preserving the health and educational development of at-risk children.

Thank you for your interest in the Early Childhood Education Caucus. The bipartisan, bicameral Early Childhood Education Caucus has set a goal to protect and preserve state support for quality programs which promote health and educational development for our at-risk children. Early childhood education is a worthy investment which will continue to pay huge dividends to Pennsylvania communities and our state’s overall economic well being. The Early Childhood Education Caucus was created in March of 2010. We continually work to reaffirm our commitment to provide the resources that give many Pennsylvania children an extra boost that helps them succeed in school and later in life. If you are interested in Early Childhood Education initiatives, we encourage you to get involved and follow what the Caucus is doing. Sincerely,

Senator Pat Browne & Representative Mark Longietti

Governor Wolf spoke to approx. 200 business leaders at the ELIC 2016 Economic Summit on Early Childhood Investment..."Children who participate in high-quality pre-kindergarten perform better in school, graduate at higher rates, and earn more throughout their working lives compared to peers that do not have access to early learning programs,” said Governor Wolf. “My 2016-17 budget proposes a $60 million increase in high-quality early childhood programs, which will help pave a path for Pennsylvania’s children for life-long success in school and the workforce.”
