- Let’s Grow Kids is a statewide movement to make Vermont the best place to raise a family and our mission is to ensure affordable access to high-quality child care for all Vermont families by 2025.
Our vision is to make Vermont the best place to raise a family. We need to focus all of our efforts on achieving our mission of ensuring affordable access to high-quality child care for all Vermont families by 2025. To do that, Let’s Grow Kids, the Permanent Fund for Vermont’s Children and Vermont Birth to Five have merged our efforts over the past year. We’ve always had the same mission united under one board and 501(c)(3), but in the past year, we’ve fully integrated our work. And, beginning in January 2019, we will all share one name: Let’s Grow Kids.
To achieve our mission, we are working with our partners throughout the state—including business, education and health care leaders, elected officials and local communities—to build a high-quality child care system and our network of over 30,000 supporters includes dedicated volunteers who advocate for increased public investment in child care so that it’s affordable for Vermont’s families and early educators. The number of supporters grows daily and includes parents, early educators, business and health care leaders, legislative champions and others who share our vision and mission for Vermont’s children and our future.
