CALL US TODAY:
The YWCA NETN & SWVA is teaming up with Tennesseans for Quality Early Education for the Loud Voices for Little Kids campaign driven by advocacy groups, nonprofit organizations, early educators, business leaders, parents and concerned citizens dedicated to advancing children's success in the early years - which studies show leads to greater success later in life. We aim to educate Tennesseans about early care and education policy priorities.
The TQEE’s policy priorities include:
Strengthening early literacy supports
Nurturing physical and mental health from birth
Increasing access to quality and affordable childcare
Making high-quality pre-K an option for more Tennessee families
Empowering parents and families

We are delighted to now be partnering with TQEE to advocate for quality affordable education for young children across the state.
