our mission
SFC works to ensure that Massachusetts invests the resources needed for all children, from birth to age five, to access high-quality early education programs that prepare them for success in school and life.
Massachusetts will stand out as a leader among states for its effective implementation of early learning systems that prepare its youngest citizens for success in school.
About Us
Strategies for Children is implementing a new strategic plan, adopted in 2021. Our plan is informed by the unique moment facing the early education and care sector as it continues to recover from the economic and health impact of the pandemic. This cohesive vision has sharpened our focus for greater impact and organizational sustainability in the years ahead

We are pursuing a common agenda—The Early Childhood Agenda—for all in the field, while building a more robust, statewide advocacy infrastructure. Our key roles are:
  • Advocate
  • Research, analyze, distill information
  • Convene, build community and relationships
  • Communicate and share information

As an independent, nonprofit advocacy organization Strategies for Children does not receive state or federal funding for any of its work. We are funded by philanthropic foundations, grants and individual donors. Learn more about how to donate to support our mission
